Interview Summary

Reverend Leonard Hood details the history of the Presbyterian Church in Leslie County from its beginning in 1894 and discusses its philosophy. Hood indicates that one of the first ministers used his influence to have a bridge built across Rockhouse Creek from the main street in Hyden to the section in which the Presbyterian Church is now located. In 1896, before the advent of the public school system, the church underwrote and built the Hyden Academy. Later it provided dormitories so that students living in more isolated areas could attend public school. The Presbyterian philosophy of equal opportunity for women in the life of the church was uncommon among earlier churches. Hood explains qualifications required for the Presbyterian ministry and also the activities of the present church.
