Maggie Delaney, Indentured Servant
Tells Her Story

Returning for the third time to Fort Boonesborough’s February Fireside Chats, Maggie Delaney did not disappoint. Carol Jarboe first debuted her presentation of the story of an indentured servant in 2009. Since then she and her husband Rev. John Jarboe have traveled thousands of miles to countless venues to deliver this tale.

It is an emotional tale of hardship in the early days of the American colonies. Not only does Jarboe go through a myriad of emotions she takes the audience through her emotional journey with her. Her story begins in Ireland and ends in America. It is one woman’s journey to find a better life for herself and her family.

Lyman C. Draper - From The Locust Grove Lecture Series


James Holmberg

Jim Holmberg of The Filson Historical Society, Louisville, KY presented the program at the February Lecture Series at Historic Locust Grove. Lyman Draper was fascinated with the early settlement period of the Trans-Allegheny region and spent a life time collecting documents, stories and accounts from the area with a strong focus on Kentucky and Tennessee.

Although he spent his life collecting, Holmberg classifies him as “a procrastinator” who never really achieved his end purpose of compiling and writing. But regardless of whether or not he achieved his purpose or whether or not his methods

were ethical - he left behind a wealth of information that may never have been saved. Read more....

Fort Boonesborough Cancels Simon Kenton Fireside Chat on February 21, 2015 due to inclement weather.

Although the snow fell early in the week, park manager Rob Minerich has made the decision to cancel the third Fireside Chat. With the amount of snow that has fallen, crews would be hard pressed to get the parking area and walk ways cleared by the weekend.

The Behringer Crawford Museum

As trains were the order of the week we made a visit to the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Devou Park in Covington, Kentucky. But it wasn’t the Christmas display but the permanent display of trains, minatures and even a full size trolley car in the lobby that caught our photographers eye. The theme of the museum is Rivers, Roads, Rails and Runways and examines transportation in the Cincinnati area in a bygone era. A wonderful place for children the museum examines the steamboat with a room dedicated to that time period.
