I took a little break from harvesting the box farm… and took a History Walk in town. It is free and includes many of the famous folks that lived or spent time in the town, some historical buildings and events that shaped the town. This tour is in its 28th year and is free.
While waiting… I liked the way the lights on the building… lined up.
Local innkeeper, that hosted General Custer, PT Barnum and Jenny Lind.
Jenny Lind- this young lady sang ‘My Old Kentucky Home’ for us.
First Free Black (my memory fails me on the rest of his history)
President Lincolns stepmother, Sarah Johnson
Tour Guide, Haycraft, son of a founding father.
Stained glass on 2 different churches in the downtown area.
It was a fun hour, and since they do this free… I think I will go again… when the temps are not quite so warm!!!
Next tour… some distilleries, and there are lots of those nearby!!!
More Later- Beth
