This old brick, last occupied by Frank L Martin, who died 1988 is located 
on the George Martin farm on the McCormack’s Church Road .  It is believed to have been 
built between 1800 – 1810.  The house has two separate basements that have entry in different rooms.  
The builder of this house is rather vague, but appears they may have been from the Caldwell 
Family of John Caldwell, second KY LT Gov, though it does not appear a Caldwell ever lived there.  
The first resident appears to be a Thomas Shannon.

I was born and reared in this house .  It is referred to as the “Walker G Rout” home in Shirley Dunn’s publication
 entitled “Historic Homes of Lincoln County ” issued sometime in the 1970s.  The two story part of the house 
was built prior to 1800; it was a log house in which no nails were used but is pegged.  The photo shows only
 one chimney against the two story front.  There was a similar chimney on the north side.  The logs have been 
covered by weather boarding prior to my memory. The house was likely built by Ca pt. Valentine Peyton’s family.  
Capt Peyton’s homeplace was a similar style house less than one mile distance across Hanging Fork Creek.  
The Peyton homeplace burned in the 1990s.   The Rout house has been in the James Martin family since 1933, 
now owned by his son Newland.  The single story ell was added in the 1800s.

This is an old house on Charles Hackley's property located at 822 Swope Road, Stanford, Ky 40484.  
If you are lucky enough to catch Johnny Conley, Farm Manager and very nice guy, 
with the gate open you can drive back.  Otherwise, climb gate and love to walk and love cows. 
Lots of cows.  (non agressive today)   It is at least a 2 mile round trip.

This fabulous old home is at 2350 Hustonville Road, west of Stanford.  
The property owner has talked with the state about preserving it.  I don't know of plans however.  
An attorney friend of mine tells me the interior, trim, etc. is beautifully preserved.  
What a grand old place.  Found it on 3-7-06.

This old home is nearly 200 years old, built in the early 1800's.  The main part of house and attic are logs, still visible from attic.  
It has been in the Caldwell family nearly all of its life and still is owned by one of the daughters and her husband.  Known as 
the Walter and Emma Caldwell place. Located2 miles SW of Waynesburg, KY.  on Fishing Creek.   To drive to it you have to cross 
Fishing Creek, and if the creek is up you park and walk about 1/2 mile, and you cross this picturesque old swinging bridge, 
still in use.  I took these pics on 2-11-06.

Photo of the home place of John and Celia Hoy Newland.   Photo taken by Rev Guy Newland in 1960s.   
A return visit in 1980s yielded no sign of the house. It was located on Walnut Flat Creek, north of current US 150.

This wonderful old home was built in 1851 by Adam and Mary Pence, grandparents of Alfred Pence 
who owns Coleman's Drug Store on Main Street in Stanford.  The home was owned by the 
Matheny family in the early to mid 1900's. 
The home was completely restored in 2009 and 2010 
by Dr. and Mrs. Eric King.  They are furnishing the house with antique furniture.  It is an absolute 
showplace.  It is located on Old Hwy 27, now known as KY Hwy 1247, or Old Somerset Pike,  
about 3 miles southeast of Stanford.  (Ronnie Bates)

 

 

 

This is the home of Phillip Tucker,  b. 1766; d. 1844, Lincoln County, Kentucky; m. Elizabeth Collier, 1796 Lincoln County.  
Also an out-building, believed to be the kitchen.  The photos were taken by David Stuart, a direct descendant of Phillip.
The home no longer stands; David believes the out-building (kitchen) still stands. 
I personally do not know the exact location of the house, other than it is very close to the William Whitley home.

here with his wife Polly Johnson. Which most of them are buried at Goshen Cemetery.

The original cabin of George "Station" Carpenter was added to and improved over the years. 
The house that stands now was built up and around it. Inside you can still see the original woodwork.
