Antique postcards donated to Cookeville museum

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A collection of antique postcards has been donated to the Cookeville History Museum by historian Ridley Wills II of Nashville.

Judy Duke, administrator of museums for the city, told the Cookeville Herald-Citizen that the small box full of postcards provides a thumbnail history of Cookeville.

Some of them will be displayed, most likely in the next year, after they are catalogued and archived. They show churches, homes, hotels, main streets and people.

The paper said Wills had collected postcards for more than three decades.
