500 Public Square: Home address of lots of folks

2013-06-18 - Historic Adair Co. Courthouse, 500 Public Square, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. Especially Pigeon Folk. Two dozen pigeons sit on the patio they still enjoy a few weeks after they were evicted from their belfry suite in the clocktower over housekeeping issues. It still a debated issue as to whether or not the birds are a plus or a minus, even outside, but so far extreme measures, such as were used in the 1950s, are not being used today. Back then, local marksmen were recruited to shoot the birds out of the air. After a long period of one sided combat, the birds retreated to Miss Mary Lucy Lowe's barn on Lowe's Lane, back when it was in the country, back before it became a state highway, back before the barn was razed to make room for new housing. - EW
