Stanford, KY: Could 1776 residents have envisioned this

2013-01-06 - Buffalo Springs Cemetery, Stanford, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener. One has to wonder seeing this compressed view of the jewel of the Bluegrass if the organizers of Buffalo Springs Cemetery could have foreseen, in 1776, the town of today, and one has to go away believing that yes, they did, and were willing to let it reach a goal of near perfection even if it took over 236 years to reach what it is today. Timeless elements, like the Lincoln County courthouse, the large tower in the mid-left, and the steeple of the Presbyterian Church, abound. Perhaps it is the lay of the land, situated at the juncture of Central Kentucky Bluegrass and the blue foothills, top of frame, of the Eastern Kentucky Mountains, which give it a special dynamic. Time was, Stanford was more familiar to Adair Countians. Time was, highway 206 was Stanford Road. But changing highway travel routes for Columbians mostly bypass Lincoln County. And that's a shame. For anyone wanting to discover it, Stanford and Lincoln County are close enough to be one of the best things about Columbia/Adair County.
