Doyle history project

In 1883, a group of men met at the Greenwood Baptist Church to plan for a college. This was the beginning of Doyle. Gathering copies of photos and information about Doyle and Doyle College, buildings, churches, old railroad depot, businesses, stores, homes, streets, and Doyle College Campus and dorms.

Any info on the African-American Cemetery and church and school at Doyle. Copy of maps of the Town of Doyle (before 1963). Names of teachers and students at Doyle College 1884-1924.  How did White County manage to lose a cultural center of the Cumberland Plateau?  A college that produced state supreme court justices and the president of the L & N Railroad.

Did E. M. Bartlett sit under a tree at Doyle and think of the words to “Everybody will be happy over there,” it does make you wonder?  Will copy any old damage photos, too.
