About the Author


Melissa Freeman came to Hearne in 2003 as reporter for the Robertson County newspapers. During her six years on the Hearne beat, she learned that the town not only had an interesting present but an intriguing past as well. Her work at Camp Hearne, a World War II POW camp, intensified that belief and became her motivation to study all 170 years of Hearne’s history.
