History Query: How did 'Meatskin Road' get the name?
Note: The writer, Frances Salyers, is co-proprietor of D & F Grocery & Deli, 4731 Edmonton Road, Gradyville, KY, and, as such, has to know almost everything, especially in these days of Gradyville's increasing importance as a tourist mecca.
Frances Salyers, writes:
OK. So a Guy came in and asked me, "How did 'Meatskin Road' get its name? So let's get some answers. - Frances Salyers.Thanks, Frances Salyers, Good question, but beyond my ken. To let others know, 'Meatskin' Road is the segment of KY 768 which connects Edmonton Road to Burkesville Road. This segment is properly named 'Weed-Sparksville' Road. Hope someone will send us the answer.
