In preparing "A History of Education" in Elkton, Kentucky, it seems that considerable progress has been made in the last century. In contacting, what we consider our pioneers today, we find much has been accomplished when we compare the old school with the present day school. During this period of research, most of our older citizens connected with the educational system of Elkton, have been called upon to contribute from the recollections, carefully preserved letters, scraps of manuscripts, printed fragments, memoranda, old histories and our present day educators. Also, citizens once a part of our educational system, now living in other states, have been corresponded with, for verification of information.
