This is what my family's hometown of Martin, KY looked like nearly a hundred years ago. Today the town looks different, as the Army Corps of Engineers prepares to demolish it and move residents out of the flood zone near Beaver Creek, a story I wrote about. In the old days, the C&O Cafe served breakfast to passengers waiting to change trains. The woman in the photo is Lora Stephens, who also operated Preston's drugstore, named after her first husband (shot and murdered at a local dance). Near the cafe, a gunslinger named Bad John Hall was involved in a notorious shootout in the 1920s. Read about the gunfight here, in the words of one of Hall's descendants.
