The Library has an extensive collection of historical, genealogical, and geographical materials about Harrodsburg, Mercer County, and the surrounding region. It includes books, manuscripts, newspapers, local government documents, obituary files, cemetery records, census data, and files on families, individuals, places, and events.
These charming photos in the HHS collection are unidentified, but we believe they are of the same boy. The two of him as a child have on their backs, "To dear Grandma and Grandpa, Love, Robert".
The one of Robert as a young man was made at a studio in Louisville. They are all undated, but we guess them to be from 1910-1925.
