Scott County Kentucky History Tidbits

The shoes were so impressed by the history of Scott County, learning that Richard Mentor Johnson, the 9th Vice-President of America lived right down the road a mile or two, that I promised to take them for a ride later that week to visit his famous home, Ward Hall, Kentucky's Grandest Greek Revival Mansion.

We talked about the Toyota Plant built in Scott County, Kentucky in 1988. The vehicles produced here include the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, and Venza. The shoes were very interested in taking the Toyota Tour, but felt a bit overdressed!

As we sat and chatted, I shared the story of the "Tent Girl" one of the most baffling cases in Kentucky's criminal history and only recently solved. We seriously considered visiting Michael Blowen's Old Friends Equine - A retirement home for thoroughbred race horses, yet decided against it considering the stilettos would sink into the damp cold ground. However, when describing the beauty of Elkhorn Creek, a meandering waterway, one-mile short of being a river, the shoes were ready to go sight-seeing!
