Home to Green County, KY - Glenview

2013-07-18 - Green County, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener.
This was once the center of the Glenview Campgounds a major church camp grounds, an important footnote in history, but importantly today, it was the boyhood of Columbia United Church Minister Bill Davenport. The old campgrounds had a tabernacle, hotel, and cabins with rotations of campers in summers many decades ago. Today, it may be known as much as a point on the Green River Paddle Trail as much as anything besides being Bro. Bill's homeplace.Last week, he retraced a lot of his growing up years in around the Bucknersville-Grab area along KY 88 in Green County. The stories he tells are filled with history, anecdotes and legend, made more plausible by the network of buddies, confidantes, cousins, and characters who make this area - at least to a majority in the 7-County area who have never been there - more fascinating than the movies. A few of the stories and photos will be coming in in the days ahead. - EW
