In 1955, the Common Council began discussion of an Urban Renewal Program. This involved acquisition of properties within a certain area, demolition of existing structures, and redevelopment of the property. The city began buying and demolishing properties in 1958 with the program continuing a number of years. Housing on Fulton Street was torn down and the land used for other purposes. The buildings on the east side of James Street were torn down and the present James Street parking lot created. There were many other changes as well, but these were among the most significant. While many problems were addressed, the city planners also made some poor decisions such as the destruction of buildings of historical importance and the senseless elimination of commercial structures that should have remained on the tax rolls.


Green Street Baptist Church, one of Kentucky's oldest African American churches, was founded in 1844 by George Wells as an offshoot of the First Baptist Church. The church originally bore the name Second African Church and then Second Colored Church. The present name was adopted around 1860. The collection contains minutes documenting membership, policy changes, disciplinary methods, letters, newspaper clippings, and photographs. Minutes of the building committee from 1924 to 1929, the choir's minutes, ledger, and attendance from 1935 to 1938 are present, along with later documentation such as a sesquicentennial celebration book and calendar, 1844 to 1994, and programs noting other anniversaries. The history of Green Street Baptist is outlined in a six-page unpublished historical sketch, "The Building of a Sanctuary," by Raoul Cunningham.Founded as Second African Baptist Church, it was known for a time as Second Colored Baptist Church, and took the name Green Street Baptist Church around 1860. Pastors have been George Wells, 1844-1850; Richard Sneathen, 1852-1872; Daniel A. Gaddie, 1872-1911; H. Wise Jones, 1912-1950; and J. V. Bottoms, 1950 to the present. The congregation moved to its present location, 519 E. Gray Street in the Phoenix Hill area, in 1930.


As the school continued to grow, Cherry fought to make the school a state-supported institution. The state finally agreed and in 1906, legislation was passed, making a portion of the school the State Normal School for Teachers. The business section was not a part of this action, and thus sold to J.S. Dickey, W.S. Ashby, and J.L. Harman, being named the Bowling Green Business University (BU).


Then, in about 1887, a log crossing construction for horses and wagons was erected and was the subject of a sketch made by an American artist, Edward Lange (1846-1912). Agneta Slott, who lived in the town of Franklin, Washington near the Green River Gorge prior to 1900, remembered the time when her family had lived there and how they traversed the Green River. Her father was a coal miner at that time.

Trimble was formed in 1837, out of Oldham, Henry and Gallatin Counties. Collins, Smith, and other historians of Kentucky give the date of the formation of Trimble County as 1836, and historical sketches of the County have fallen into the same error. The Act creating Trimble County was approved by the Governor, February 9, 1837. (See Acts 1836-37, p. 141.) And the Act took effect in the separate governmental establishment of the County, as of April 1, 1837.


The farms in Trimble County, with one or two exceptions, are not large, averaging perhaps about 80 acres. The population of the county is more than 90 percent native. There are, perhaps, less degrees of poverty and wealth in the county, than in any other county in the state. There are few wealthy people. The farms are usually owned by their occupants. Less than ten percent of the population belongs to the tenant class. This condition results in a steady, intelligent, law-abiding citizenship, unexcelled anywhere in Kentucky. It is no unusual thing for the doors of the County Jail to stand wide open for a year or eighteen months at a time without a single prisoner.


It is needless to say that they appeared no more before Judge Bartlett for that purpose. The bonds were never issued, and the County was thus saved of an enormous debt, which it would have been compelled to pay without having a foot of railroad built within the limits of the county. This railroad debt became a great burden on all of the counties that had voted the bonds. Two of the counties, Green and Taylor, were unable to pay it, and compromised the railroad debt at about fifty cents on the dollar, issuing new bonds on that basis. Litigation came up which was conducted in the Circuit Courts and the Court of Appeals, and even in the Circuit court of Appeals and Supreme Court pf the United States. The counties were held responsible, and within the last two or three years, green and Taylor Counties have paid off this railroad debt on a compromise basis of about fifty-five cents on the dollar.


In 2007, John and his brother Hank began a video blog project called Brotherhood 2.0 which ran from January 1 to December 31 of that year and was published to their YouTube channel "Vlogbrothers". The two agreed that they would forgo all text-based communication for the project's duration and instead maintain their relationship by exchanging these vlogs. Each submitted one to the other on alternating weekdays.[53][54][55] During that year, the brothers gained a large following during the early years of YouTube, especially after Hank's video "Accio Deathly Hallows" was featured on the front page of YouTube.[53] In what would have been the project's final video, the brothers revealed that they would extend their video correspondence indefinitely.[j] As of November 2022[update], they have continued exchanging their vlogs and the channel has over 3.5 million subscribers and 900 million views.[k]


A film adaptation of The Fault in Our Stars was green-lit within three weeks of the books release.[75] Green had initially been hesitant to sell the movie rights for the book, saying, "I'd had some unhappy experiences before, and I didn't want a movie I didn't like being made from a book that's so important to me. This book frankly is more important to me than my other books."[9][83][84] To that end, Green was involved in the movie's pre-production, and was on set for most of the film's shooting.[83][84] In March 2014, The Indianapolis Star described Green as having, "an underground career that's rolling toward the mainstream".[85] The Hollywood Reporter stated in May 2014 that even before the movie's release, its expected success was causing a shift in the types of films being made for teenagers, with Pouya Shahbazian, the producer of the dystopian science fiction film Divergent, stating, "I've already had calls from studio execs who want to be on the list for small, intimate stories that previously would have been impossible to sell to their senior execs. Who would have believed a small-budget, YA teenage cancer love story would have rival studio execs calling it a potential event movie?" Additionally, the magazine reported that the film studio behind the move, Fox 2000, would consider anything over $125 million in box office earnings a huge success.[86]


Green's books have been translated into 55 languages with more than 50 million copies in print worldwide, including The Fault in Our Stars, which is one of the best-selling books of all time.[216][15][3] Green's idiosyncratic voice and rapid rise to fame in 2014 are credited with creating a major shift in the young adult fiction market. While reviewing the Andrew Smith young-adult novel, Winger, A. J. Jacobs of The New York Times used the term "GreenLit" to describe young adult books that contain "sharp dialogue, defective authority figures, occasional boozing, unrequited crushes, and one or more heartbreaking twists."[217][15] According to The Wall Street Journal, "[s]ome credit him with ushering in a new golden era for contemporary, realistic, literary teen fiction, following more than a decade of dominance by books about young wizards, sparkly vampires, and dystopia. A blurb or Twitter endorsement from Mr. Green can ricochet around the Internet and boost sales, an effect book bloggers call 'the John Green effect'." Zareen Jaffery, executive editor of Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers said: "What I really like about what people are calling 'the John Green effect' is that there's more of an interest in authentic, genuine, relatable characters."[9][218] Some readers and authors have been critical of the terms.[219] Green himself voiced his disagreement with the idea that he is single-handedly responsible for launching or promoting any one individual's career.[219][220][221]
