Last week my husband and I had the pleasure of visiting South Central Kentucky Cultural Center in Glasgow. What a marvelous museum and research library the people of Glasgow are blessed with. Your museum ranks as the best of any of the county museums that we have visited across the nation.
I would like especially to thank Ms. Gayle Berry and her staff who assisted us while researching my ancestor, Daniel Shipman, who was a pioneer resident in the Barren County area before Barren County was formed from Warren County in 1799.
As our children and grandchildren are growing up in such rapidly changing times, we need to teach them where their roots originated and the values on which our country was founded. It is our responsibility and sincere hope that the people of Glasgow will preserve the museum and library and encourage the young and old to experience the excitement of our past. Thank you.
