LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
Land was soon purchased and construction begun. Laurel Seminary was completed in August of 1858, a proper dedication with appropriate speakers was held, and classes began in September of that year.
I can see that this subject needs more than one column, so stay tuned.
You can read Dyche’s booklet and see photos of the Seminary at the Laurel County Historical Society’s library.
