Society has publications for sale

The Woodford County Historical Society's facility at 121 Rose Hill serves as both a library and museum. In addition to the many resources for research and items to see, the society has 65 publications and 33 hand colored prints for sale. Publications come under nine categories: census records (11), cemeteries (seven), deed books (seven), guardian and executor bonds (one), local funeral homes (five), marriage records (six), early maps (two), wills (eight) and books (13). These publications cover mostly Woodford County history, dating back to 1780, but also some from the contiguous counties of Fayette and Scott and Jessamine, plus Estill County. Books include two comprehensive ones on the county's now 200-plus years of history (one with numerous black and white photos), another on the 23 large highway markers within the county, five books by Midway area residents Jonelle Fisher and John Steele Davis, and nine other books. Most of these books and publications are soft-bound. There are also 33 hand colored prints of various buildings throughout the county, suitable for framing in an 8.5" x 11" size, by Sammy Hancock Cundiff. A percent of the sale of these prints goes to the society. Stop by the facility's building to peruse and/or purchase any of these items, use the library and view items on display, The next meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 27. Guests are welcome* The program will feature a representative from the Versailles Police Department, who will discuss the heroin problem and how it affects the community.
