Paintsville 1914

Did you ever wonder about the 2’x 10’ panoramic picture that is on the side of the library between the two entrances? It was taken in the fall of 1914 and produced on 3 (6x4) photos. The photographer stood at the edge of the Johnson County Cemetery that is on Church Street facing south to capture this image. Stop by the library and you can see what Paintsville looked like 100 years ago.
