Homeplace on Green River: 211 Years in the Making

Homeplace on Green, 5807 New Columbia Road, Campbellsville KY, is now a part of the everyday language of South Central Kentuckians, but many still ask what it's all about. In this comprehensive, the writer, George Kolbenschlag, details most of the answers one needs to know to tell a community visitor, if not so much as one would need to be a docent or guide at the growing South Central Kentucky agri-tourism attraction - or maybe it is.
Homeplace on Green River Fall Festival will again feature Kentucky crafted art, crafts and locally produced items at its Saturday, September 6, 2014, Fall Heritage Festival, open from 8am-4pmCT/9am-5pmET.

By George Kolbenschlag

When Isaac Tate build his home in what is now Taylor County in 1803 he could not have known that 211 years later the land he chose would still be a working farm and one of Kentucky's most promising future tourist attractions. Nor could he have known that students of all ages from surrounding counties would be using his farm, now Homeplace on Green River, as an outdoor classroom. But he probably would have been pleased.

Celia Downey likes Shamarie Claiborne owl pictures

Her own owl, she says, has been elusive, heard, but not seen

Celia Downey writes:
Shamarie, you are the fortunate one to actually see your owl whooo sits in view and then you catch him with your lens. Frustratingly I can only listen to the hoots of my alusive owl since he knows that a camera is poised for the shot. My owl is an evasive one, teasing and hooting from the high branches, while totally hidden. If only one brief glimpse, but sadly he will probably never be seen, only heard. Again, great shot Shamarie, Celia Downey --celia downey

Life in the Holler: The owl, in two different moods

But in both he shows just how beautiful and full of mystery he is. - SHAMARIE CLAIBORNE
Click on headline for essay and the two owl photos

By Shamarie Claiborne

There are a million tales about owls. They have been around longer than most folks realize. Their pictures have even been found in cave art. Some folks think they are good luck some think they are bad luck. But for me they are almost majestic. I hear them frequently at all times of the day but to see one and even catch a shot of one . . . I have done that only one other time in all my years in the holler. It truly must be my lucky day. Glad I bought lottery ticket.

Anyway I got two different shots of this fellow. Each has it's own mood. The first one he is looking back at me hiding in the shadows just out of the reach of the sunlight. Hidden just enough to blend in. Reminds me of a shape shifter - like if I blink he will be gone. While in the other one he is sitting on a post with his head down so still he almost looks store bought. But in both he shows just how beautiful and full of mystery he is. I hear him and his girl talking during the late afternoon sometimes. I imagine they are making plans for the evening. So truly blessed to live one door down from this wonderful creature and his lady friend. - Shamarie Claiborne
