Rockbridge Alum Springs Co. (r.a.s. Co.) Kentucky Row 128 (brass Key Tag Va For SaleThe R.A. S. Co. was located west of Lexington, Virgina, In Rockbridge County. The resort open in the 1830's. By the 1850's a grand hotel had been constructed along with KENTUCKY Row & Baltimore Row. During the Civil War the resort was used as a hospital. The springs closed up in the 1910's. Detailed history of the resort can be found in "Historic Springs of the Virginias" by Stan Cohen.
I recently purchased this great Virginia ephemera key tag from the Powell estate of Goshen, Va. The late Mr. Powell was a avid collector of Rockbridge & Jordan Springs items. Mr. Powell had numerous Spring bottles but only one key tag which is offered here.
