J. Winston Coleman ran a weekly series in the Lexington Herald featuring
various Kentucky sites.  On February 21, 1965, he picked St. Joseph's.  See it here (pdf)

"Camp Springs - A graphaphone concert and festival will be given Saturday evening, October 10, at Uthe's Hall for the benefit of the Tug-Fork School.  Two hours of enjoyment will be furnished  by that wonderful instrument which reproduces the songs of noted singers, popular selections by famous bands and  comic recitations by well known comedians." from the Kentucky Journal, of October 18, 1900

Don Baumann's 22 part history of Camp Springs' families is at this site.
