CWC Home Tour 2012: The David and Cathy Martin Home

2012-11-18 - 506 Young Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by George Kolbenschlag. The Martin Family Home, 506 Young Street (Bing Map), Columbia, KY

David and Cathy Martin moved into a new home in 1994. Seven years later, an addition gave more room to the original and recently a major renovation brought the house an outstanding different inside appearance. Walls were removed to meld the kitchen, now filled with needed cabinetry and counter surface, with the large living room. The centerpiece is a newly surfaced stone fireplace - perfect for hanging the five Christmas stockings for David, Cathy, McKenzie, Blake and Blake's wife, Haley. The dining area now is large enough for great family gatherings. The bright white new woodwork outlines the beautiful colors selected for the walls. Please enter the door beside the garage. Parking is allowed on the lawn if the soil is dry. Benson and Webster, wagging their tails, will make you feel most welcome.

Their second "home" is the Grissom-Martin Funeral Home, a building that was constructed in 1818 by an early merchant in Columbia, Elijah Creel, who with his brother, was the founder of Creelsboro, a major trading center on the Cumberland River in the 1800s.
