Advocate to publish Boyle pictorial history

November 09, 2003

The Advocate-Messenger will publish a pictorial history of Boyle County in the spring of 2004. Tentative availability is scheduled for June 1.

We are asking our readers to share old photographs that depict life in Danville and Boyle County during and since the town was established in the mid-1700s.

The photos can be of families, businesses, houses, barns, fairs, festivals, family reunions, famous relatives, musicians, sports events or teams, bands, organizations, churches, factories or anything that depicts early Danville or Boyle County.

Photos should be accompanied by as much information as possible, including dates, names of people and locations, plus the name, address and telephone number of the person contributing.


Selection of the photographs to be used in the 156-page book will be made by editors and designers. Space will be limited, and not all submitted photographs will be used.

Submit your photos for consideration to: History Book, The Advocate-Messenger, P.O. Box 149, Danville, Ky., 40423, or bring them by the newsroom at 330 S. Fourth Street. Your photo(s) will be scanned and returned by mail as soon as possible.

The pictures will be compiled into an organized, indexed, album-like hardback book, printed on acid-free paper that should last more than 200 years.

Copies of "Looking Back: A pictorial history of Boyle County" may be reserved for $24.95 plus tax with a prepaid order (a $5 savings). Mail your check to the address above, call 236-2551 and reserve your book with a credit or debit card. Or, watch our Web site at for the opportunity coming soon to order your book online.

But hurry, the books will sell for $29.95 plus tax over the counter or off the shelf.

In either case, a shipping fee will be added if your book must be mailed.

Vendors interested in selling the books in their stores must place a minimum order of 25. For details, contact your Advocate advertising sales representative.
