D. Boone carving at TRH - Chris Bennett wants to know more

2016-11-10 - Trabue-Russell House, 201 Jamestown Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Chris Bennett.
"My question: On display with the Boone carving was a newspaper article on how the tree carving had been analyzed by experts and declared to be authentic. On top of the carving however there is a piece of paper glued to a cardboard that kind of says this carving is a fake, or that is how I took it. Tim Green said it was better for us to not question it and just believe. I really want to know "was my whole childhood a lie?" Do the historians of Adair County believe that Boone actually carved on this tree or was my childhood A lie? I will say this, there are other carvings that I have seen of Boone's that appear to be in the same hand writing style. - Chris Bennett
