Montpelier: A Memory on Demand


2014-10-24 - Montpelier-on-the-county-line - Photo ColumbiaMagazine.com (c).
It's an Had Oughta that we oughta heed: A dear friend, pining for his Old Kentucky Home from far northern Ohio, requested photo(s) last week. It was a simple request: Go to Jamestown, snap a photo. Return to Columbia via KY 92, and then swing over to Edmonson County. Specifically, he wanted a photo of the Montpelier store on the trip across KY 92. And this is one of the pictures we came home with. It was pure sorriness that we let him down on his modest request that we "swing over to Edmonson County" find a town, locate a cemetery, and take a photo of an obelisk as tall as the one in Jamestown, and an e-bit, maybe a tad, shorter than Mr. Jefferson Davis'. We let him down on that one. His ideas were better than any we had conjured up for that beautiful gray day. And learning a less - owing to a lack of imagination and creativity around - We realized that from 100s of miles away, someone else exceeded our own self-inspired notions. So we're asking that readers do the same thing: Request photo(s) of particular places in the 7-County Area of Adair, Casey, Cumberland, Green, Metcalfe, Russell and Taylor Counties. If we are not up to the job, we'll put out a call for help. Just like one would ask Larry to play 'Don't Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.' And, if you don't have time to email, ring us up at 270-250-2730.. Our thanks to our dear friend. His daytrip suggestion was delightful. We could have stayed and looked at this building forever, if Edmonson County had not been calling.

KY Afield Outdoors: Blue Water Trails - South Fork, Licking River


Two floats on the South Fork of Licking River give a modern Kentuckian an understanding of why the pioneers braved such challenges to settle this pastoral and rich river valley.
This article is the thirtieth in the periodic Blue Water Trails series highlighting the floating, fishing and tourism opportunities on Kentucky's streams and rivers.

By Lee McLellan

FRANKFORT, Ky. - The pioneers settling along the verdant South Fork of Licking River in what is now Harrison County had a tenuous hold on their lands in 1780. The privations of carving crude civilization out of wilderness, the threat of attack by enraged Shawnee or their ilk, in addition to the whirlwind of the western theater of the Revolutionary War, all combined for a tough life.

A threat emanating from the north in the early summer of that year would eventually bring terror to this corner of the world. British Capt. Henry Bird and his Native American allies moved south from Detroit, crossed the Ohio River and moved into central Kentucky, via the Licking River system. A number of families, many of them Pennsylvania German, lived along the South Fork of Licking River in Ruddle's Station, near what is now Lair, Kentucky.
