Before dedication: Wayside Markers at Gradyville, KY

2007-08-12 - Gradyville, KY - Photo By Ed Waggener.
Frances Salyers, at an Adair County scene which gets prettier and prettier. Salyers is co-proprietor with husband Daril Salyers of D & F Grocery & Deli, the hub of modern day Gradyville, at the newly landscaped wayside markers on the store's campus. The photo was taken before the dedication of the markers yesterday, Saturday, August 11, 2007. Since the Salyers' took over the store, a voting house has been placed on the grounds, community games have been encouraged, a residence has been added, and the brush has been cleared on the west end to make entrances and exits safer. The Wayside exhibits honor Gradyville native E.A. Diddle and commemorate the June 7, 2007 Gradyville Flood. Inscriptions on the markers were researched and written by Vonnie Kolbenschlag, accompanied by beautiful photographs by George Koblenschlag.
