The Capitol Buildings of Kentucky 

In April, 1792, a convention assembled at Danville and 
prepared a Constitution ,of Government ; and on the fourth 
day of the following June, the territory theretofore known 
as West Fincastle County, Virginia, was admitted into the 
Federal Union, as a sovereign State, the Commonwealth 
of Kentucky. On Monday, the fourth of June succeeding, 
the first session of the First General Assembly was held at 
Lexington, the seat of government of the new State, and 
on the fifth of November of the same year the second 
session was held. These meetings were held in a rude 
two-story log building which was the first temporary State 
House. On December 22, 1792, the General Assembly 
adjourned to hold its next meeting in the House of Andrew 
Holmes, at Frankfort, and thenceforth Lexington ceased to 
be the seat of government. 

The second State House of Kentucky, also temporary, 
was a large frame house, in the lower part of Frankfort. 
In this the session of 1793 was held. 

The third State House of Kentucky (the first perma- 
nent one) erected for the purpose, was occupied for the 
first time as the capitol by the third General Assembly on 
Monday, November 3, 1794. This is described by his- 
torians as being of stone, very rough and unsightly, and 
three stories high. The first floor was occupied by the 
public offices; on the second floor were the hall of the 
House of Representatives, and the several courts of jus- 
tice ; the Senate chamber was in the third story, and hence 
the distinction of that early day of the "upper" and "lower" 
house. The records show that the State paid not exceed- 
ing |3,500 toward the erection of the first permanent 
capitol, the remainder having been subscribed by Andrew 
Holmes and others to secure the location at Frankfort. 
It was destroyed by fire November 25, 1813. 

The fourth State House of Kentucky was, of course, 
temporary, a building having been rented by the State 
until the completion of a new capitol. 

The fifth State House of Kentucky (the second perma- 
nent capitol), was built in 1814-16. Its construction was 
authorized by act of January 31, 1814, when a commission 
was appointed to contract for and superintend the erec- 



8 KENTUCKY DIRECTORY. 

tlon of a new capitol. It was constructed at a cost of 
140,000, of which $20,900 was realized from individual 
subscriptions and the balance was appropriated by the 
State. The building was of brick, two stories high, with 
two rooms on the first floor, which were utilized by the 
Legislature, while the courts of justice were accommo- 
dated on the second floor. T^ere were two wings de- 
tached from the main building used as offices by the 
State officials. On November 4, 1824, the second perma- 
nent State House was burned, leaving only the wings 
intact. 

The sixth State House (again temporary), and rendered 
necessary by the recent fire, consisted of the seminary 
building on the east side of the capitol square, where the 
Senate held its session, and the large meeting house on 
the west side, which was occupied by the House of 
Representatives. On December 12, 1825, the latter body 
was again forced to move, as the meeting house burned, 
and the sessions were held in the Methodist church, for 
the use of which a voluntary rent was paid. 

The seventh State House of Kentucky (the third per- 
manent capitol) was first occupied by both houses of the 
Legislature on December 7, 1829, and the same in which 
the sessions were held until 1908. Six different appro- 
priations were made for the erection of this capitol, of 
sums amounting to about $85,000 in the aggregate. Col- 
lin's History, published in 1878, describes It in the follow- 
ing manner: "It is a large and very handsome structure, 
built of polished Kentucky marble, with a portico in front 
supported by six columns of the Ionic order. The Senate 
and Representative halls are in the second story, each of 
moderate capacity, handsomely finished." 

Probably nothing about the State House has been so 
universally admired as the marble stairway under the 
dome and leading to the legislative halls. 

The same authority described the Governor's Mansion 
as follows: "A large, plain building of brick — no longer 
creditable to the wealth, pride and public spirit of the 
people of Kentucky." 

In 1869, new and more commodious State buildings 
were projected. An appropriation of $100,000 was made 
and a commission was created to formulate plans for the 
new capitol. The plans adopted contemplated handsome 
east and west wings of three stories, built of dressed 



KENTUCKY DIRECTORY. 9 

stone, and joined by a central structure of which the old 
State House proper was to constitute an integral part. 
The new building was to be surmounted by a handsome 
dome. Porticoes of classic style were to finish the east 
and west wings, while in the main front was to be a por- 
tico of Corinthian columns, the whole to present a hand- 
some appearance and at the same time one of severe 
simplicity. 

The Senate chamber was to be located in the east wing 
and the House of Representatives in the west wing and 
in the two wings were to be provided offices for the vari- 
ous State officials. In 1871, an additional appropriation of 
$55,000 was made, which but partially completed the work 
as already begun, and consequently the east wing was left 
and is still in an unfinished condition, while the west 
wing was never commenced. Consequently the old west 
wing of the second permanent capitol building in 1814-16 
still stands. The east wing was occupied by departments 
and was known as the executive building. 

The General Assembly of 1904 appropriated $1,000,000 
for the erection of the present new capitol building, and 
upon investigation the commissioners found the old site 
inadequate for the building which was proposed to be 
erected, and Gov. Beckham convened the General Assembly 
in extraordinary session to consider the site favored by 
the commission, in 1905, and a new site was chosen about 
one mile South of the old building, on a prominent plot 
of about forty acres, admirably located for the building. 
Ground was broken on August 14, 1905, and the work 
begun. The session of 1906 appropriated $250,000 addi- 
tional for marble interior and granite columns. 

The session of 1908, on recommendation of Gov. Will- 
son, appropriated $450,000 for power house, lighting plant, 
furnishings and fixtures, landscaping, etc. Thus with the 
cost of the site, for which appropriation was made at the 
extraordinary session of 1905, $50,000 appropriated at the 
session of 1910, for finishing landscaping and putting in 
the approach, a total of $1,820,000, the present magnifi- 
cent building was erected and furnished, making one of the 
most complete, handsome and modernly equipped build- 
ings in the United States. It was occupied in the fall of 
1909 by public officers and the session of 1910 of the Gen- 
eral Assembly was the first to hold its session there.

CONSTITUTION 

OF THE 

Commonwealth of Kentucky 



PREAMBLE. 

We, the people of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, 
grateful to Almighty God for the civil, political and re- 
ligious liberties we enjoy, and invoking the continuance 
of these blessings, do ordain and establish this Consti- 
tution. 

BILL OF RIGHTS. 

That the great and essential principles of liberty and 
free government may be recognized and established. We 
Declare that: 

Section 1. All men are, by nature, free and equal, 
and have certain inherent and inalienable rights, among 
*vhich may be reckoned: 

First: The right of enjoying and defending their lives 
and liberties. 

Second: The right of worshipping Almighty God accord- 
ing to the dictates of their consciences. 

Third: The right of seeking and pursuing their safety 
and happiness. , 

Fourth: The right of freely communicating their 
thoughts and opinions. 

Fifth: The right of acquiring and protecting property. 

Sixth: The right of assembling together in a peaceable 
manner for their common good, and of applying to those 
invested with the power of government for redress of 
grievances or other proper purposes, by petition, address 
or remonstrance. 



18 KENTUCKY DIRECTORY. 

Seventh: The right to bear arms in defense of them- 
selves and of the State, subject to the power of the 
General Assembly to enact laws to prevent persons from 
carrying concealed weapons. 

Sec. 2. Absolute and arbitrary power over the lives, 
liberty and property of freemen exists nowhere in a 
republic, not even in the largest majority. 

Sec. 3. All men, when they form a social compact, 
are equal; and no grant of exclusive, separate public 
emoluments or privileges shall be made to any man or 
set of men, except in consideration of public services; 
but no property shall be exempt from taxation except 
as provided in this Constitution, and every grant of a 
franchise, privilege or exemption, shall remain subject to 
revocation, alteration or amendment. 

Sec. 4. All power is inherent in the people, and all 
free governments are founded on their authority and insti- 
tuted for their peace, safety, happiness and the protection 
of property. For the advancement of these ends, they 
have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to 
alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner 
as they may deem proper. 

Sec. 5. No preference shall ever be given by law to 
any religious sect, society or denomination; nor to any 
particular creed, mode of worship or system of ecclesi- 
astical polity; nor shall any person be compelled to attend 
any place of worship, to contribute to the erection or 
maintenance of any such place, or to the salary or sup- 
port of any minister of religion; nor shall any man be 
compelled to send his child to any school to which he 
may be conscientiously opposed; and the civil rights, 
privileges or capacities of no person shall be taken away, 
or in anywise diminished or enlarged, on account of his 
belief or disbelief of any religious tenet, dogma or teach- 
ing. No human authority shall, in any case whatever, 
control or interfere with the rights of conscience. 

Sec. 6. All elections shall be free and equal. 

Sec. 7. The ancient mode of trial by jury shall be 
held sacred, and the right thereof remain inviolate, sub- 
ject to such modifications as may be authorized by this 
Constitution. 

Sec. 8. Printing presses shall be free to every person

in which the bill is pending. But whenever a committee 
refuses or fails to report a bill submitted to it in a rea- 
sonable time, the same may be called up by any member, 
and be considered in the same manner it would have been 
considered if it had been reported. No bill shall become

repel invasion, suppress insurrection, or, if hostilities are 
threatened, provide for the public defense. 

Sec. 50. No act of the General Assembly shall author- 
ize any debt to be contracted on behalf of the Common- 
wealth except for the purposes mentioned in section forty- 
nine, unless provision be made therein to levy and collect

of any railroad company or corporation, and choses in 
action, money and personal property of all kinds belong- 
ing to it, in the hands, or under control, of any officer, 
agent or employe of such corporation or company, shall 
be subject to process of attachment to the same extent 
and in the same manner, as like property of individuals 
when in the hands or under the control of other persons. 
Any such earnings, choses in action, money or other per- 



KENTUCKY DIRECTORY. 65 

sonal property may be subjected to the payment of any 
judgment against such corporation or company, in the 
same manner 1 and to the same extent as such property

payment, transportation, handling or delivery; and shall 
so receive, deliver, transfer and transport all freight as 
above set forth, from and to any point where there is a 
physical connection between the tracks of said companies. 
But this section shall not be construed as requiring any 
such common carrier to allow the use of its tracks for 
the trains of another engaged in like business. 

Sec. 214. No railway, transfer, belt line or railway 
bridge company shall make any exclusive or preferential 
contract or arrangement with any individual, association

passengers, or of property of like kind, under substantially 
similar circumstances and conditions, for a shorter than 
for a longer distance over the same line, in the same 
direction, the shorter being included within the longer 
distance; but this shall not be construed as authorizing 
any common carrier, or person or corporation, owning or 
operating a railroad in this State, to receive as great 
compensation for a shorter as for a longer distance: Pro- 
vided, That upon application to the Railroad Commission, 
such common carrier, or person, or corporation owning 
or operating a railroad in this State, may in special cases, 
after investigation by the Commission, be authorized to 
charge less for longer than for shorter distances for the 
transportation of passengers, or property; and the Com-

with the yeas and nays of the members of each House 
taken thereon, shall be entered in full in their respective 
journals. Then such proposed amendment or amendments

be taken thereon in such manner as the General As- 
sembly may provide, and to be certified by the officers 
of election to the Secretary of State in such manner as 
shall be provided by law, which vote shall be compared 
and certified by the same board authorized by law to 
compare the polls and give certificates of election to

shall become a part of the Constitution of this Common- 
wealth, and shall be so proclaimed by the Governor, and 
published in such manner as the General Assembly may 
direct. Said amendments shall not be submitted at an

on each, and no amendment shall relate to more than 
one subject. But no amendment shall be proposed by 
the first General Assembly which convenes after the adop- 
tion of this Constitution. The approval of the Governor 
shall not be necessary to any bill, order, resolution or 
vote of the General Assembly, proposing an amendment 
or amendments to this Constitution. 

Sec. 257. Before an amendment shall be submitted to 
a vote, the Secretary of State shall cause such pro- 
posed amendment, and the time that the same is to be 
voted upon, to be published at least ninety days before 
the vote is to be taken thereon in such manner as may 
be prescribed by law. 

Sec. 258. When a majority of all the members elected 
to each House of the General Assembly shall concur, by 
a yea and nay vote, to be entered upon their respective 
journals, in enacting a law to take the sense of the people 
of the State* as to the necessity and expediency of calling 
a convention for the purpose of revising or amending this 
Constitution, and such amendments as may have been 
made to the same, such law shall be spread upon their 
respective journals. If the next General Assembly shall, 
in like manner, concur in such law, it shall provide for 
having a poll opened in each voting precinct in this State 
by the officers provided by law for holding general elec- 
tions at the next ensuing regular election to be held for 
State officers or members of the House of Representa- 
tives, which does not occur within ninety days from the 
final passage of such law, at which time and places the 
votes of the qualified voters shall be taken for and against 
calling the convention, in the same manner provided by 
law for taking votes in other State elections. .The vote 
for and against said proposition shall be certified to the 
Secretary of State by the same officers and in the same 
manner as in State elections. If it shall appear that a 
majority voting on the proposition was for calling a con- 
vention, and if the total number of votes cast for the 
calling of the convention is equal to one-fourth of the 
number of qualified voters who voted at the last pre- 
ceding general election in this State, the Secretary of 
State shall certify the same to the General Assembly at 
ita next regular sessjon, at which session a law shall

amend this Constitution, and such amendments as may 
have been made thereto. 

Sec. 259. The convention shall consist of as many- 
delegates as there are members of the House of Rep- 
resentatives; and the delegates shall have the same quali- 
fications and be elected from the same districts as said 
Representatives. 

Sec. 260. Delegates to such convention shall be elected 
at the next general State election after the passage of 
the act calling the convention, which ' does not occur 
within less than ninety days; and they shall meet within 
ninety days after their election at the capital of the 
State, and continue in session until their work is com- 
pleted. 

Sec. 261. The General Assembly, in the act calling 
the convention, shall provide for comparing the polls c-«£ 
giving certificates of election to the delegates elected, 
and provide for their compensation. 

Sec. 262. The convention, when assembled, shall be 
the judge of the election and qualification of its mem- 
bers, and shall determine contested elections. But the 
General Assembly shall, in the act calling the convention, 
provide for taking testimony in such cases, and for issu- 
ing a writ of election in case of a tie. 

Sec. 263. Before a vote is taken upon the question 
of calling a convention, the Secretary of State shall cause 
notice of the election to be published in such manner as 
may be provided by the act directing said vote to be 
taken.

fication or rejection at a special election held for said

THE STATE UNIVERSITY 

The University oif Kentucky was established* by Act of 
Legislature in 1865, in accordance with the Morrill bill passed 
three years previously. It was then known as State College 
of Agriculture and Mechanical Arts. With the addition of the 
College. of Liberal Arts and of Law, the institution became 
known as the State University in 1908. 

In 1916 the name of the institution was changed to that 
of the University of Kentucky. The University is supported 
by Federal funds and from the one and three-fourths cent tax 
on each $100 of assessed valuation and from invested funds. 
The institution now has twenty-seven buildings, a student 
body of fifteen hundred, and a teaching staff of one hundred 
and twelve. With the University are associated the Experi- 
ment Station and Agricultural Extension work. These are 
maintained jointly with the Federal government and the 
State government. 

Courses are maintained in arts and sciences, agriculture, 
mechanical, electrical, civil and mining engineering, and in 
law. The graduating classes average one hundred ana 
twenty-five. 

The direction of the University is vested in a Board of 
Trustees, consisting of the Governor, who is ex-officio Chair- 
man of the Board, the State Superintendent of Public In-

EASTERN KENTUCKY STATE NORMAL SCHOOL 

Richmond, Ky. 

Richmond gave to the State for the home of the Eastern 
State Normal School the buildings and campus of Old Cen- 
tral University, the famous Presbyterian Institution which 
was removed to Danville and united with Centre College in 
1901. The campus lying- between South Lancaster Avenue 
and South Second Street is one of the most beautiful in the 
South. It has a splendid sweep of bluegrass turf, thickly set 
with fine maples and other trees. 

The Regents met on June 2, 1906, and elected Ruric Nevel 
Roark, at that time an honorary fellow in Clark University, 
as President of the Eastern School. The Model School opened 
September 7, 1906; the Normal School opened for students on 
January 15, 1907. The first act gave to the Eastern School 
an annual appropriation of $20,000 and $5,000 for equipment. 
Under the Act of 1908 the school secured an additional annual 
appropriation of $20,000 and a special appropriation of $150,000 
for new buildings and equipment. In 1912 an additional an- 
nual appropriation of $35,000 was secured, thus bringing the 
annual appropriation for the benefit of the school up to 
$75,000 per annum. Under the Act of 1918, the method of sup- 
porting the school was changed. Instead of a fixed appropria- 
tion of $75,000 a year for maintenance, there was substituted 
a millage of 5,^ of a cent on each $100 worth of taxable prop- 
erty in the State to maintain the school and take care of 
the erecting of new buildings from year to year and provid- 
ing new equipment. 

The purpose of the Eastern State Normal is to do dis- 
tinctly professional work. It devotes itself exclusively to the 
training of teachers. 

The Board of Regents at present is composed of Honorable 
J. A. Sullivan, of Richmond, Ky. ; Judge J. W. Cammack, 
Owenton, Ky. ; Senator H. M. Brock, Harlan, Ky. ; Superin- 
tendent W. P. Price, Corbin, Ky.
