Milltown building: Heard, anecdotally, it was old barbershop

Comments about Scenic Adair Co., KY: A place of great beauty in Old Milltown

By Former Milltown resident

I lived in Milltown three years and asked lots of questions regarding its history.

I was told anecdotally by a wise source this is the old barbershop.

The old post office and general store were still standing when I left as well.

Its a double tragedy, as dear Miss Bonnie (as we knew her) passed away recently in her beautiful Milltown home.

She was rightfully proud, as the interior of that house put Scarlett O Hara's Tara to shame. Miss Bonnies house was the original hotel, and featured original woodwork and a grand staircase. I will miss both dearly. Neither Miss Bonnie or her house could ever be forgotten.

I also know Miss Bonnie knew quite a bit about Milltown too, and had a photo of a small traveling carnival that would come each summer and set up in the field across from her house. The photo was from the turn of the century.

Thanks, hope this helps.

2014-08-13 - Milltown, District 5, Adair Co., KY - Photo CM Staff photo. It's picture postcard pretty, this brick building from the glory days when Milltown was a thriving Adair County retail center, lovingly allowed to choose its own time for final leave taking. The building is on KY 768, Milltown Road at this point, about one mile west of KY 61. (Historical details, and confirmation on whether the attic plant is, as it appears from the photo, a trumpet vine, would be appreciated.) - CM.
