More About Kyrock a Pictorial History by Ernie Elmore
 
 
 
Overview
In the early 1900's Kentucky Rock Asphalt Company opened a facility in Western Kentucky near Brownsville with quarries and an elaborate rock asphalt processing facility that produced an excellent asphalt paving material widely sold for the increasingly popular road paving industry. What resulted was a place called Kyrock where thousands came to live and work for the company. Information has been compiled about the company, the area, the people and their way of life. There are first-hand accounts from former workers and residents and numerous photos of the plant operations, quarries, school, church, communities and people. Many articles and papers were consulted to get as much information as possible so that this important part of local history could be preserved in a single book. The book describes and shows in hundreds of photos how the company was built and how the hard working people made the company a success while overcoming tremendous obstacles. Read about how the people overcame the difficult circumstances with the help of a strong leader and how great success can sometimes suddenly come to an abrupt end.
