Spencer County Courthouse - Taylorsville, Ky.

Spencer County Courthouse, Taylorsville, Ky.
I apologize for the delay on this post. I took this photo back in July of this year, but was never quite able to get things posted. Now that I'm on what will have to pass for a vacation I can get these things posted. Spencer County is a unique place. It's between Lexington and Louisville, but for some reason I've never really visited.
Taylorsville is its county seat, and was founded on 60 acres of land given by Richard Taylor, who was President Zachary Taylor's father. Richard Taylor operated a grist mill nearby. Taylorsville is probably best known for Taylorsville Lake, the man-made lake that serves as a recreational area. Dam construction began in 1974 and flooding began in 1983. The lake is pretty murky, due to the fact that a great deal of standing timber was still standing when the lake was flooded.
