A must stop on the horse country tour has little to do with horses, but a lot to do with history. Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill offers visitors 3,000 acres of history on beautiful grounds. You can stay at the inn and dine at the restaurant. Period-costumed workers make products for sale in some of the buildings. For a photographer, the opportunities are endless.

Fall is one of the best times to visit, but the grounds are beautiful year round.

A great place to spend a Friday or Saturday afternoon is the Cynthiana-Harrison County Museum, right in my hometown. I am proud to say that I played a very small part in making this museum happen when I was a reporter/photographer for the local newspaper years ago. I remember many interviews and photos of the blossoming project. I decided to share the museum with my sister, who was visiting from out-of-town.

The photo above is of a matte-board replica of Cynthiana around 1900.

The craftmanship of this model is spectacular.

There are so many great things that have either been donated or loaned to the museum. The objects are from every era of the county.

No tribute to the history of Harrison County would be complete without some tobacco, the crop that sustained this town for many years.

This dollhouse, which is visible from the street, is remarkable.

There is also a replica of Harrison County High School, my alma mater.

I love vintage toys.

You can definitely say the museum has a lot of fans. Har. Har.

Lexington, Kentucky is the home of many historical buildings. This one was where statesman Henry Clay’s law office was located. It is about a block away from Mary Todd Lincoln’s homeplace. I like the modern building that is situated directly behind Clay’s office. Downtown Lexington has many examples of mixing old with new architecture.

Everything Kentucky!

This site is about the state of Kentucky, the people, places, history and happenings.
