IC's Kentucky Pics

Recommended Posts

Most of these have been posted in other threads I made, but I have decided to compile them all together for this new forum.

This summer, I was lucky enough to travel around most of the American Midwest as I visited Mammoth Cave, my Mom's hometown in Stanton, KY, spent the better part of an evening gazing at the Cincinnati skyine from Covington/Newport, visited the Football and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, and finally I visited Chicago. I got to travel through a good bit of Kenticky, so here are my pics:

Mammoth Cave!

Winchester and Stanton!

Street Corner in Winchester:

Looking Down That Street:

--This one wasn't taken by me. My Mom was using her camera for this shot (which needless to say is much better than the disposable one I was using). However, I'm still posting it because, oddly enough, she took this picture right as I was in the middle of taking the one before this one. I am the guy in the denim jacket, of course.

I'm Assuming This is the County Courthouse in Winchester:

The Church My Mom's Father Used to Preach at, Stanton First Baptist:

--LOL! I once again make an appearance! this time, I'm in the balcony on the top left corner. Still wearing that denim jacket from earlier!

Supposedly My Mom's Childhood Home Until She was 6 Years Old:

Louisville's Skyline!

--I took these from my car on the way home from Chicago. I scanned these in, so there may be a white boundary surrounding them.

What do you think? :)

As a bonus, here are a couple of Cincinnati I took from Newport/Covingto, KY.

I really like the two Louisville shots, esp. the second one since its from a different angle than I usually see. The Cincinnati shots are nice as well.

Winchester looks like it used to have a pretty substantial and well-off commercial district. Is the city being proactive in revitalizing their downtown? Looks like they would have a good base to work with.

I'm not so sure what Winchester is doing about its downtown. I will say this, though: the shops that linedthe street seemed pretty busy and well off and the streets themselves seemed active for a town of its size.

Winchester is doing fine. Its downtown is doing quite nicely considering how close to Lexington it is and the fact that there is a Wal-Mart Supercenter in town.
