6 Sites Recommended for the National Register (part 2)

Yesterday, I profiled 3 of the 6 sites recommended for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places by the Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board. The sites were:
  • Marianne Theater in Campbell County; 
  • Charles Young Park and Community Center in Fayette County; 
  • Lynn Acres Apartments in Jefferson County;
  • Louisville, Gas & Electric Co. Service Station Complex in Jefferson County; 
  • Hellman Lumber and Manufacturing Co. in Kenton County; and 
  • Elkhorn City Elementary and High Schools in Pike County. 
Below, I'm briefly going over the last three properties on the list: the Louisville, Gas & Electric Co. Service Station Complex, the Hellman Lumber and Manufacturing Co., and Elkhorn City Elementary and High Schools.

All 6 nominations which will be forwarded to the National Park Service (NPS) for final determination of eligibility. A decision on designation will be rendered within 60 to 90 days.

The end of the story of Nicholasville's 'Lady Sterling House'

The Lady Sterling House. Nicholasville, Ky. Author's collection.
 In 1804, Thomas Jefferson was president of the United States. The Louisiana Purchase was completed. And Christopher Greenup was elected the commonwealth’s third governor.

Only six years earlier, Nicholasville was founded and Jessamine County was formed. These were the earliest of days for our nation, our commonwealth and our community.

Also in 1804, a log cabin was built on lot 104. Lot 104, as found on Nicholasville’s original plat map dated 1802, was at the northwest corner of West and North Cross streets. Those road names are today known as First and Walnut streets, respectively.
