JCC Fireplace

JCC Fireplace

There is an inscription over the fireplace at the main building on the JCC campus in downtown Louisville. That inscription reads: James Rankin Barret in loving memory of his wife Lucy Stites Barret erected this building. Is James' wife Lucy still earthbound by this loving tribute? Does she return to this special location because of the love she once knew here? Will it be possible to glimpse this ghostly figure for yourself? Or does Lucy hide behind that invisible curtain of time, watching us and wondering why we were intruding in her favorite place.
