Wow, Jennifer! Do you know that the portrait of Yarrow Mamout by James Alexander Simpson that hangs in the Peabody Room is Jerry McCoy’s favorite thing! Thank you for your story! We can only imagine how interesting the project!

Ms. Adele Dodson

I was so enamored and inspired by Adele’s story, Holy Trinity asked me to write a story they could share. Adele has requested this be used as her story for mapping georgetown. I can’t even imagine as a grammer school age child, taking yourself to school, on the trolley, to the end of the line, and walking up the exorcist steps to Holy Trinity. Georgetown at this time was a model integrated neighborhood as told in the additional Dodson girl’s stories.
