A spot by the road

Not much is known about the Carbondale community, and little is left to mark its location in the county, except a Sinclair gas station sign no motorist can miss. It lies on a heavily traveled stretch of county road between St. Charles and Earlington.

This feature story originally appeared in the The Messenger in the small towns section of their "Changing Face of Hopkins County" on September 6, 1996 and was written by Slone Hutchison, a summer intern from Murray State University working with The Messenger to gain practical news papering skills during her summer vacation.

My thanks to The Messenger for granting permission to publish on the Hopkins County, Kentucky KyGenWeb page.
