Does anyone have any pictures of the old Greyhound Bus station? My dad was the Manager there when he passed away in 1955 we lived in Lothair his name was Alton Prather. I would love to hear from anyone who may have remembered him or anything about the bus station during the late 40's early 50's.
I remember bus station in later years.I used it to go to and from Lexington to visit grandmother when I was young before I was old enough to drive and she used it to come here. I used to eat breakfast sometimes at bus station also which had a good deal. It was a good service for people unable to drive.
We took the Greyhound from NJ to Hazard many moons ago and we, my family, were not used to riding in cars so needless to say, the kids spent most of the ride in the toilet, lol, I can still remember the exhaust smell.....ewww!!
Buddy, I think you had to pay to use the bathrooms at the bus station. I remember that very long trip from NJ to Ary and I can still remember how sick we all got. I don't think Michael (oldest brother) and Mommy got sick.
I remember getting on the bus in Hazard to go visit my mother's sister in Louisville. My mother's cousin, Dorse Duff, drove the bus to Lexington and he would escort me to the next bus that would take me to Louisville. I thought it was wonderful to ride a big bus, as I was only five or six at the time. I also remember stopping at Dalton's Restaurant in Stanton, KY. It served as the bus stop and also had the best food. Dorse would take me in there and help me order what I wanted to eat and then we would get back on the bus and head down the back roads to Lexington. What wonderful memories! That bus provided a wonderful service to people in eastern Kentucky! My mom used to talk about the holidays, especially Christmas, when they would have to add several buses each day to insure all the customers could get home for the holidays!
