As far as the bricks go... before they tore it down a group of business men gathered to sell all of these bricks in which Pauline did not profit from FYI. Funny thing on my back porch i have a brick from her daughter in laws house "Mary Tabor" my grandmother.
A young man named Donnie Firkins of Glasgow bought the house, painted a picture of it and sold prints of it - you can find them all over the area. I believe he is the one who had the ingenious idea of selling the bricks from the house; I have heard an interview with Pauline in which she states she wished she had thought of that.

According to the now deceased director of the KY Museum at WKU, Pauline was also a collector of good antiques. When she was about to move away she offered many of her Kentucky antiques (apparently from the Logan county area) to the museum for their collection. Dero Downing was WKU president at the time and absolutely forbid the acceptance of any donations because of Pauline's past. So that Kentucky history from right here left and probably won't ever return.

It wasn't history because it was Pauline's, it was history because it was hand crafted one-of-a-kind furniture made in south central Kentucky many, many years before she had it.

It amazes me how many people are on here ranting about something that is HISTORY!!! In those days every town had houses like this. If you want something or someone to preach at, then go find the college girls advertising on craigslist and go hunt down the streer walkers we have now. I don't believe in adultry or prositution but Miss Paulines brothel is part of Bowling Green history. Never have I heard anything bad about this woman except for the brothel.(which like I said was being done in all towns). You so called "Christians" really should go back and read your Bible. All of you have probable done sinful things to. I have to saying for you "Christian" people downing this woman:
"People in glass houses should throw stones" and
"When you point the finger at someone else, there are 3 pointing back at you"
May Miss Pauline rest in peace!

Sure we have all sinned but we don't make a 30 year career of it. She encouraged it, promoted it and accomodated it for her own personal gain. That does not even begin to address the issue of it being illegal and her rubbing elbows and getting a pass from corrupt cops and politicians. The rest of us have our faults but we realize they are faults. Unlike that soulless woman Pauline.

No, most people's sinful behavior occurs over an entire lifetime not a 30 year career. And every person, good or bad, has a soul.

A hos, a hos, a hos...Pauline Tabor laid her two kids off on her poor old mama to raise and got busy doin' what she liked to do best evidently. That's nothing to brag about. And no, I don't think the old bag had ANY scruples! Just sayin'.

If you people we so christian then why are you trolling topix for forums like this? There is no need to be so negative. I never said she was a hero. I just think it is really hypocritical for you to call yourself christians, all while you look for post like this to talk all this trash about a woman who is deceased. It's all history. It been done and is over. Focus your negativity somewhere else. Take your free time to read you Bible again and pray for forgiveness for all the trash you have talked on here. I'll pray for you also. No one asked you to agree with what she did but no one asked you to talk your trash either. Quit being a busy-body. There's always a few people who like to call themselves christains and then go around gossipping about everyone else when in all reality those are the ones doing the wrong. Like I said, I don't agree with postitution but what can you do about something that happened years ago? Still I am not going to trash talk Pauline because of what she decided to do with her life. That was between her and God. None of you have the right to say you hope she asked to be saved. Worry about where you will go.

This topic made me laugh. All you people making judgements on Pauline when none of you knew her. That's pretty sad. The old girl did what she did to make money. Back in the day, EVERY town had a whore house or three. The girls that worked for and with Pauline were clean.(Yeah, I do know)
Get over it.
You wanna preach the gospel, get OFF the computer and find a church. Topix ain't no church. And, if you want to toss out Pauline as a sinner, any and everyone here is a sinner, and none of you need to judge. According to the Bible you spout, you go to hell for judging people. Look it up.

A commone excuse used by the immoral to justify their criminal activities. She could have gotten a real job but chose not to. Just like the drug dealer, con artist, and so on. I don't have to know her to know what she did. She chose to be trash.

people can use more excuses NOT to have a real job..This woman and her staff of prostitutes were low..I dont care how CLEAN her women were. they were still dirty wh*res. a ho is a ho. it doesnt matter where they come from or how "clean" they are. My father visited that place many times. How he ever found to time to get my mother pregnant 7 times and leave her at home all the time to raise them is beyond me. Yeah i know you will probably say, if he didnt to go paulines, he would have went else where, and im sure he probably did. But that doesnt make "pauline's" any less a disgusting person. give me a break! and as for my father...no respect there!

Oh get over it! She was a sinner just as YOU are. She was what she was, nothing more. Just like You. You didn't know her. Move on for God's sake.
And, yeah, your grandpa probably DID sleep with her. Don't care. Dang.
