Last week, the Kentucky Heritage Council met to review local applications for the National Register. Although inclusion in the register is no guarantee of protection, it does help protect the properties. Kentucky has done a good job in getting her landmarks onto the Register - only New York, Massachusetts and Ohio have more. Here are the five contenders with some notes directly from the respective applications:
|Hawkins House, Henderson|
historic context, “George F. Barber and Queen Anne Style in Henderson, Kentucky.” The house’s scale, ornamentation, and location give important cues to post-Civil War socioeconomic development in Henderson. [PDF]
|Jenkins School, Jenkins|
|McBride's Landing, Harrods Creek|
|Miller Co., Louisville|
|Most Blessed Sacrament |
