Trabue Russell House opened for Friday event
The 200th anniversary of the historic Trabue Russell House was celebrated Friday, September 17, 2021 at the Jamestown Street home. Dining tables were set up in the yard for those enjoying burgoo, beans, cornbread and fried pies. The weather was perfect for the event.
Special guest Mel Hankla, native of Russell County and founder of American Historic Services LLC, greeted those attending and signed his book, Into The Bluegrass.
Hankla is a noted collector, researcher, lecturer, and writer of Kentucky heritage. He is an active member of the Kentucky Rifle Association, is a past president of the Contemporary Longrifle Association, and editor-in-chief of American Tradition Magazine. He grew up in Jamestown, Kentucky and attended Western Kentucky University.
"Daniel Trabue," builder of the one-and-a-half-story brick home on the bluff overlooking Columbia was portrayed by Columbia historian Richard Phelps.
To tour the House, contact the City of Columbia, 270-384-2501.
