  • Sometimes it only takes a few steps forward to walk back in time.

    If you were at Red Orchard Park this past weekend, you walked past this sign, “Welcome to the 18th century.” You saw the tents, the storied artifacts and outfits. You saw Indians and horses. You saw the Long Run Massacre reenactment.

    “I was really delighted. Everything made off without a hitch,” said Kathy Cummings, president of The Painted Stone Settlers, which put on the 3-day reenactment.

  • No settled station was more exposed to Indian attack in the late summer of 1781 than Squire Boone’s Painted Stone Station. It had lost several of its defenders in recent harassing attacks, and venturing beyond its wall was a hazardous undertaking.

  • Early Saturday morning, members of a local church will convene for what would seem an ordinary weekend project to help a member of the community.

    When this group departs from a house just east of Shelbyville later that day, a young man who has mobility problems will find it much easier to get in and out of his home.

    But the project won’t stop there.

  • Norris Beckley wants to clean up the streets of Shelbyville. To start, he needs help cleaning up the old Shelby County Community Center gym.

    It’s there, at 121 Martin Luther King Jr. Street in the community of Martinsville, that he hopes to establish Stepping Stone Youth Enrichment Inc., a program he created earlier this summer to improve the lives of underprivileged kids.

  • Once again, the Shelbyville Horse Show Jubilee and AT&T are sponsoring a youth art contest open to students in the region from kindergarten through grade 12.

    Entries are already stacking up in the offices of the Shelby Development Corporation, but Executive Director Eilene Collins said there is room for more.

    The show has two-dimensional categories for all grades and three-dimensional categories for middle and high school students. Participants may enter one item per category.

  • Following the successful defense of Boonesborough during the Great Siege of 1778, Squire Boone, early in 1779, moved his family again to Fort Harrod.

    And in the spring of that year he took them in two large canoes down the

    Kentucky and Ohio rivers to the Falls of the Ohio.

  • The Shelby Saddlebreds Chapter of the Kentucky Junior Historical Society won 8 first-place awards at the KJHS State Convention on March 27th-28th.

Shelby Saddlebreds had winners at every level of competition.
