The Glass House

The Glass House was a popular place for many years in Scott County. It also served as the bus stop for the Greyhound Bus Line. For years it was one of only two or three places you could eat out. I think it was torn down in the late 1970's but don't quote me on this. My Granny Gibson, Maude Ethel (McCoy) Gibson worked at the Glass House as a cook in the 1930's. My mother worked there as a waitress in the 40's and 50's. My parents held the wedding reception there for one of my sisters in the early 60's. I use to go there as a teen with friends and have a hamburger, fries and a coke. We would play the pin ball machines for hours. The Glass House holds many memories for many people of Scott County and surrounding areas.

I found this and other pictures packed in a box handed down to me by my mother Etta (Willoughby) Gibson. I think they may have been part of a calendar at one time. She probably cut them out to keep as memories of Scott County. She had written down the location of the picture on the back of each photograph. I would like to give credit for those responsible for these great photographs of Scott County's past and to say "thank you". I hope you will enjoy viewing these cut out photographs.
