Hannah Fowler House opened in 1962
Comments re article 57910 Remembers Hannah Fowler House of the 1960s query from Peggy Fudge
By Mike Watson
The Hannah Fowler House opened in 1962-- "Arts and Crafts Center Here Will Be Named Hannah Fowler House--Center to be named for famous Kentucky novel by Adair\'s nationally known Janice Holt Giles.
At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Adair County Arts and Crafts Corporation held last week, it was voted to name the craft center the Hannah Fowler House.
Several names suggested by people were considered. In trying to find a name unique to Adair County, the Board's vote made official their conviction that Adair County possessed one unique distinction no other craft center in the state had--a nationally famous author living in the county.
To honor Janice Holt Giles and to honor her most famous Kentucky novel, it was voted to call the craft shop after her book Hannah Fowler....In addition to handcrafts of every kind solicited from the entire county, the center will feature several special Hannah Fowler items, such as Hannah Fowler dolls, Hannah Fowler jams and jellies, Hannah Fowler baskets, and Hannah Fowler candies...will also carry all of Mrs. Giles' historical novels, which have sold more than 2,000,000 hard-cover copies.
. Hannah Fowler House, located next to the Phillips 66 station on east 80, will open officially Tuesday, May 1st (1962). - Adair County News article, 11 April 1962, page 1 --Mike Watson
