Not Forgotten

This blog has not been forgotten, but adding new posts would move the pictures further down the page. There may be some news later this year, however, of ceremonies in which Dr. Lena Madesin Phillips will be remembered and honored. I'll try to let everyone know.

PLEASE ENJOY

Please enjoy these photographs taken in Nicholasville, Kentucky, of the childhood home and tombstone of Dr. Lena Madesin Phillips.

Nicholasville, about twelve miles southwest of Lexington, is probably not much bigger than it was in Dr. Phillips' time, still a very pleasant place with a small-town atmosphere.
