Gradyville roadside markers will be placed June 28, 2007
The Adair County Road Department will be installing two roadside markers in Gradyville on Thursday, June 28, 2007.
One of the roadside markers commemorates the Gradyville Flood and the other marks Gradyville as the birthplace of America's most colorful basketball coach, Ed Diddle.
Judge Ann Melton said she was happy the Adair County Road Department could help with the project. "This a a good project. It will help promote travel to Adair County. That's good for business. And the markers honor a very important Adair Countian and commemorate an important Adair County event," she said, "I know the road crew will do a good job."
Sue Stivers, Executive Director of the Columbia-Adair County Chamber of Commerce, secured the markers from South & Eastern Kentucky Tourism Development Association (SEKDTA).
The site selected for the markers is near the Gradyville Precinct Voting House, on the premises of D & F Grocery on KY 80. The property is owned by Daril & Frances Salyers.
Mrs. Stivers said that the site was selected after taking into consideration the benefits to the traveling public. "We could have placed them nearer the actual historic sites," she said, "but no other place in Gradyville offers the parking, or the store with food, a place to drink coffee, and restrooms. It'll be a great place for tourists to read about Mr. Diddle and the flood" she said. "and then go inside and meet the people who know the area. They're so friendly in Gradyville.
