Finding aid and scan (Click on "Additional Files" below) for Manuscripts Small Collection 2564. Letter of Harold A. Miller, Mayor of Bowling Green, Kentucky, to Frances Jones Mills, Kentucky Secretary of State, providing statutorily required information about the City of Bowling Green, namely its incorporation date (1812), its present classification as a Second Class city, and its present boundaries (detailed on a map which is not included). The date of incorporation presumably references Laws of Kentucky 1811, ch. 308 (approved 6 January 1812), which directed the town’s free white male inhabitants to assemble on the first Saturday in May 1812 to elect a board of trustees, who were empowered to pass bylaws regulating local affairs.
