Knifley, KY before the town was removed for the lake

2017-09-05 - now Green River Lake - Photo from Donald Knifley Photo Collection shared on CM 2006-04-20.
Knifley, Adair CO, KY - This is a picture of Main Street, looking east in Knifley taken around the mid-1950s to early 1960s, before the town was torn down and moved because the Corps of Engineers took the old town to make way for Green River Lake. On the right, the Texaco gas pump is in front of the Luke and Marie Knifley Restaurant. On the right is the two story Knifley Post Office, unidentified metal sided building, the KY 551 from Columbia, then the brick building which housed the Jack Hovious Store, then a vacant lot is where barber shop was, then the L.R. Chelf Store. This side of the post office would be where the Leon Christie Store was located. This photo, taken by Bro. Wolgemuth, was the inspiration for a painting now owned by Louise Spires.
