|Description||An article from the "Mountain Herald" about the influences that worked towards the development of Lincoln Memorial University. The Cumberland Gap area is where Kentucky, Virginia, and Tennessee intersect. Possible visitors to the Cumberland Gap prior to the Revolutionary War are cited, with reference to the recorded exploration of Dr. [Thomas] Walker in the Powell Valley region and some of the men who accompanied him: Elisha Wallin and Ambrose Powell. Additional references are made to the traders that followed the great "Warrior Path" of the Indians; later visits to the region by Daniel Boone and Henry Clay; Civil War activity, and the post-Civil War growth and industrialization in the nearby town of Middlesborough, Kentucky through the entrepreneurship of Colonel A. A. Arthur. The expansive and ritzy "Four Seasons Hotel" developed by the "American Association" was built in Harrogate, Tennessee, a property that once stood on the campus grounds of Lincoln Memorial University. Many socialites and prominent guests from Eastern cities and from England visited the local area including the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough, England; Mr. Jacob Higson, a renowned engineer from England; Lady Pauncefort and daughters, as well as many others. However, disaster soon befell the enterprise, as a result of the financial collapse in London. It was the Harrow Hall school of Cumberland Gap, named after the English school, that formed the beginning of Lincoln Memorial University.|
