This Just Happened, a weekly roundup

Oliver Perry House at Camp Nelson (Jessamine Co.), now a National Historic Landmark
The nation's most significant designation for a landmark is that of a National Historic Landmark. Kentucky has two more National Historic Landmarks: Camp Nelson in Jessamine County and Stagg Distillery in Franklin County. [Herald-Leader]

One step below a National Historic Landmark is being listed on the National Register; 28 such Register-eligible sites (including 11 in Jessamine Co.) are threatened by the proposed I-75 Connector between Nicholasville and I-75 in Jessamine County. Among the threatened sites: Marcellus Clay's White Hall. The I-75 Corridor was one of this year's Blue Grass Trust Most Endangered Properties. [Herald-Leader].

A number of northern Kentucky, Ohio River developments are underway or in the works for 2013. [NKY.com]

The Lexington Visitor's Bureau has launched an awesome new website, Beyond Grits, which highlights and categorizes 106 local eateries in Fayette County. Hopefully, the LCVB keeps it up to date! [Beyond Grits]

And for curious minds, the initial development plans for Disco Kroger have been filed. [LFUCG]

It's not Kentucky, but still interesting. Ground was recently broken on land where Harriet Tubman once toiled as a slave for a new Maryland state park to be named in her honor. [Reuters]

And further from Kentucky, English archaeologists unearthed thirteen bodies from the early days of the Black Plague while excavating for the Crossrail project, a high speed rail across London. And its not the first significant historic find during this massive underground dig. [BBC]
