Overview

Garrard County, Kentucky (Images of America Series) by Rita Mackin Fox


Nestled in the bluegrass region of central Kentucky, Garrard County traces its pioneer beginnings to the mid-1770s. Officially founded in 1797, the county remains predominantly rural to this day; its citizens are patriotic, service-oriented, and proud of their communities and ancestors. In this volume, county resident Rita Mackin Fox has gathered more than 200 photographs, focusing primarily on everyday people going about their lives—on the farm, in towns, and at school, work, worship, and play. Each image will bring back memories or provide a glimpse of what life was like for earlier residents. Fox also pays tribute to some notable people and events, including Kentucky Mountain Boy Bradley Kincaid, Carrie A. Nation,
possible Uncle Tom’s Cabin connections, and a visit by a former king of England. This volume also contains images that show the formation of Herrington Lake, now a major recreation and tourism area.
