Scenic Adair Co., KY: Jamestown Hill on rainy evening

2013-08-09 - 300 Block, Jamestown Street, KY - Photo CM staff photo. In this compressed view, somehow the Jamestown Hill doesn't seem as steep as it was when a kid could get up to 50 mph measured on a windspeed cereal box speedometer, and sometimes, for richer kids, measured with a state-of-the art cable turned Stewart Warner bicycle speedometer, with an anagram face every bit as impressive as the one on their father's 150 Chevrolet or Mainline Ford, either plainer than a Mennonite sedan - what Mechanix Illustrated auto reviewer call, "broom peddlers" specials. At least two constants in the photo: The courthouse, which has only changed colors; and the no longer original Dairy Queen - but maybe better, since Sandra Keltner's family reopened it as "Sweets & Eats." The soft serve is even better than DQ, and the constant lines at 114 Jamestown Street attest to its popularity.
