Flood of 1943 and Arthur Akin


Both of these photos were taken of the Arthur Akin Home and the road going to it during the 1943 Flood. Isn't the color great on these old slides?

Have you heard the interviews of local residents, including Janet Akin Faro that the High School students took as part of the Smithsonian project?   Stop by the theater in the History Center to hear these first hand stories of the floods in Lawrence County.   Schedule a group tour if you haven't done so already, or come in on a weekend.
