News from Revist Knifley

Sit a spell, tell a tale! Revisit Knifley organizers plan to collect and preserve stories and information from the past by offering an opportunity for folks to share their memories of the Knifley community.

Visitors to the festival, planned for September 9th in the Knifley Community, will have the chance to share their memories and stories from their childhood or time spent in the community. A designated place near the front entrance of the old Knifley Grade Center will be turned into a makeshift recording studio and anyone will be welcomed to "sit for a spell" and tell about their experiences in Knifley.

Organizers are hopeful that many stories about "old Knifley", the past businesses, colorful residents, family life, schools etc. will be recorded and preserved for future generations. There will also be a map available for the older folks to designate the location of past Knifley businesses, homesteads and landmarks.

There will be a display of Knifley history available so that visitors can learn more about how Knifley became a community. The display this year will feature the Phillip Knifley family and descendants and a detailed list of those that attended Knifley High School.

Anyone that would like to contribute to the Knifley History efforts can contact Kathy Tucker at 270-634-1263 for more information.
