Here are some old buildings along Old Frankfort Pike - took these today

Default Life down in "Tatum" - as we called it

Yes, I know this place quite well since I grew up right across the river from it. The area was once a busy little country store area by the old iron bridge with about 12 families living in the vacinity with a country church - Mt. Olivet - located right across the Chaplin River. The old hotel was used as the Bingham 4-H Camp during the years of my childhood. I spent a week there (while less than 500 feet from my home) at camp back in the mid 60s, up on the top floor next to the river (right) side. The boys had the rooms on the left side.

It was thought of as a big fire hazard back then even, which - along with the tendency of that area for drastic flooding when Kentucky gets heavy rains - most likely led to the decision of the state 4 H people to build a modern camp at a different location and abandon that old hotel. HOWEVER - that building had mystery, faded elegance, and the ghosts of many a slow, social southern evening haunting its wide verandas from all the years that came before our time.

I often wondered about its faded glory. Too bad that to us locals it was just a part of our surroundings - no big deal, at the time. I suppose that I grew up thinking that everyone looked our their front windows at a really large two-story dark green building with soft gray-white verandas and huge old trees growing around it.

Default Outdoor venue at Woodbury

Here is a pic of the outdoor stage behing the river museum in Woodbury. Goregeous setting with the river behind the tree line. The perfect place for summer concerts & plays, etc!

I made a trip today to Nicholasville to do a shelter pull and decided to bring the camera along since there was no set time. I've wanted to do this for ages since I started working with the shelter and pass such great places.

I can't tell you all of them, but I'll do my best!

These caves, although I'm guessing they are old closed mines, are just outside Jamestown. Not sure if it's technically TN or KY. I love caves though, and even though this isn't really a cave per se, I thought it was neat. The place is actually really big, but the pictures just don't show it well. Look at the trees on the top of the ridge for size reference.







This area is a little further down. It's a big rock over hang and they've set up tables in there for picnics or whatever. Nice idea; unfortunately POS's have decided to leave garbage laying around and spray paint the rocks. It's a shame; it's a really neat little area.

Some old homes back along 52 and 127 in southern KY









This must have been a commercial building of some kind
