Loudon County Images from the 1940s-1950s

contributed by John N. Alexander


John says:  I'm interested in finding some old photos of the Bacon Mill that in the 1940s was located at the right base of the Bridge, crossing from the Lenoir City side to the Loudon Side of the river. I'd also like to find photos of the old Loudon Elementary School that I understand burned several years ago. Do you know if photos circa 1940s exist of the First Baptist Church and where it was located?

If anyone can help John locate photos please email him by clicking on his name above!  Thanks!

Also, John notes: I would greatly appreciate any one with info/comments on these photos contacting me.
