Up the Road

Today our adventures took us to a town not too far away from the farmette.  Bardstown, Kentucky is located about an hour away from us.  To be honest, I haven't had the gumption to visit, even though I have heard that it's all that and a bag of chips.  

So, I discovered that it is. 




I had breakfast at Mammy's restaurant and yes, it was fabulous. 



Then, I discovered all of the historic details of the town. Seriously, this house was for sale by owner.  

Be still my old-house-lovin'-heart. 


Even the old jail house has been turned into a bed and breakfast.  I threatened to put the kids here, but they just rolled their eyes. 



They're on to me....

  11. Hi Michelle - I love those old houses, too. And some of them are slowly disappearing. Now, those stocks are looking pretty handy! I would've loved to have had some of those when I had teenagers!

  28. Had a brother-n-law who lived there many, many moons ago. As always, nice pics.

  29. Nice varied architecture. The Jail house looks like something I would come across on my side of the Atlantic. When I was looking for accommodation for my Welsh trip last year I came across in my research a Police station. It became apparent by the website that the room I was about to book was the overnight cell. I wondered why it was a lot cheaper than what would be the inspectors room ... I stayed elsewhere !!
