This interview is one of several in the Oral History of Appalachia collection in which the primary focus of conversation is national and world history. Brought up in Kentucky near the Cumberland Gap, Mrs. Scott described her life there and in Milton, West Virginia, where she has lived since 1917. Travel, "moonlight" schools, and the original brick construction of route 60 are discussed. She remembers the First and Second World Wars on the home front, as well as conditions during the Depression. Church activities and those of childhood, such as skating on the Big Sandy River are discussed, as are the making of clothes, food preservation, and special activities for women in the church.
