Time to go, City says: The Parson House

2014-05-08 - Parson House, 401 Campbellsville ST, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener. It's been a Columbia landmark a KY 206 marking place, for over three quarters of a century. The charming small residence with a gingerbread woodwork, still has its romantic, pleasant side from the cemetery side, but the Columbia City Cemetery Board, with the blessing of City Council, is planning legal action, using provisions of a 2006 KY statute, to acquire the property and raze the house. Possible uses are a chapel or additional grave lots. If the house can be removed prior to construction of the Town Creek project, it will make that work easier to do. The project, when the final go-ahead is given, will likely be done in large part by the local Kentucky Highway Department crew in Columbia, with only an already State contracted trackhoe service being needed, which will streamline the project, according to State Senator Sara Beth Gregory. (R-KY 15).
