Reader Seeks Memorabilia of Lupton City

Friday, April 18, 2014

My name is JoAnn (Wimberley) Carter.  I was born in Lupton City in 1937 on the street called "4th". My grandparents and parents were the Marlers and Wimberleys who worked at the mill and lived on 2nd street.

I remember the school,grocery and dry-goods store, drug store and fountain, swimming pool ,gym, post office,clinic, church in the middle of 2nd street., administrative bldg, bank (i think) Everything people who worked at the mill would need.

All of that is fading away;I feel the need to see all of this in print to show my children and grand children.

 I have lived most of my life in Florida. and nearly all of my growing up family are gone.  Do you have any archives that you can direct me to about Lupton City, before it (or I) expire?  I would appreciate any and all.

Most Sincerely,
JoAnn W. Carter

I am convinced we have the best collection of people at the State Legislature in Nashville we’ve ever had – I adore each of them. I am also blessed to believe Erlanger is back on track and, after a sensational ... (click for more)
