  • David, I agree that this picture looks like it was taken just off Depot Street looking North. Bethany Lane was the outer limits of my T-G paper route (route 11) about that same time and it was unpaved. At that time there was no Prince Street. Fairground Heights was a dead end and did not go all the way through to Bethany Lane. There was no Rockwood Drive, and I can not be certain if Maplewood Drive went all the way through to Bethany Lane or not. My best memory is that it did not. However, there was a Cobb Street and there was either two or three houses on it. Thanks David, those are some good memories.

    If I remember correctly Bethany Lane also marked the City Limits at that time.

  • The man on Bethany Lane is Atty. John Templeton who I believe served as Mayor and City Manager ....He was a neighbor of ours on Hobson Avenue at that time...I heard that his son John is a Medical Doctor in Winchester, TN....

  • The fellow in the picture may very well be John Templeton. However, it sure looks like Dayton Cobb to me!

  • I would love to get a hold of more of the Wartrace school info such as the Wartrace Pantherettes, I do remember and any elementary info in those years as well. Just reply back to this post if you have any info!
