Rockbridge Alum Springs Co. (r.a.s. Co.) Kentucky Row 128 (brass Key Tag Va :
The 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.
