Travel Tips for Richmond

Ron Isaacs, Local Artist

by Krumlovgirl

Ron Isaacs is a genius. That’s all there is to it. While he doesn’t have a store, his stuff is sold all over the country. He uses plywood and acrylic paint and makes these wonderful 3-D displays that look like real clothes. Except it’s wood! You have to see it to believe it. Once I saw one of his designs and from a distance it looked like a wedding dress. A really beautiful wedding dress. As I got closer and closer it STILL looked like a wedding dress. It took me forever to figure out that it was plywood. I don’t have any photos of his work but you can check out the weblink below to look at his stuff. He has things for sale at the Artisan Center in Berea right now and they go pretty high.

On a side note, I worked as his model for two years while I was in college and his wife was my art teacher in high school. (The two years I went-I graduated early.) When I left he did a portrait of me and gave it to me as a gift. It’s hanging in my mom’s living room now and is one of our favorite things.

Support Downtown-Tea at the Bennett House

by Krumlovgirl

One of my favorite things to do is to have tea at the Bennett House B&B. They have the tea on the first Saturday of every month and the times are 11:00, 1:00, and 3:00. Since they started them several years ago, we have not missed any unless we are out of the country. We have also stayed there several times and it is a lovely place. The tea is really good and almost a small meal. I really enjoy the scones with lemon curd.

You have to have reservations and they start taking them for the Christmas teas in October so it pays to plan ahead.

If you go, tell Richard and Rita that Brenda and Rebecca say "hi"!

EKU International Banquet

by Krumlovgirl

Whenever I am in town I always like going to the International Banquet. It is hosted by the International Education office at EKU and gives the international students a place to showcase their culture through song, dance, food, and costume. It sells out pretty quickly so you have to buy your tickets early. The food is wonderful and served buffet style. Last year over 20 nationalities were featured. They also do a parade of costumes and while you’re eating the students do performances native to their country. It’s a lot of fun.

The banquet goes on in November. Check the website for specific dates.

Barn's Mill

by Little_Lou_Lou

Barne's mill was one of the oldest business in Madison County, dating back to at least 1795. The mill was used for the production of building lumber. The mill was run and owned continuously for 100 years by the same family and closed in aproximately 1913. All that remains are the falls where the mill was located.

To view the falls, take exit 87 on interstate 75. Go west off the exit and continue approximately eight miles. There will be a sharp curve in the road right after the falls that goes over the creek. The falls are on the left.

Valley View

by Krumlovgirl

There are several things that set Valley View apart from other communities of long ago around Richmond. One is the Valley View (car and people) ferry that is still in operation today. You can ride it from Madison to Jessamine county and it is free. The other thing is that if you are a fan of Cassius Clay and his history, this is the town where he first met his fourteen year old wife, Dora. (He was in his eighties which is another reason that Cassius himself was the man.) Although Dora’s home place no longer exists, it is her celebrity that gave the town a bit of a boost in the early 1900’s. Today, nothing remains of the town that once was. Still, it is worth driving down and taking a look at the ferry and a lot of the old buildings are still standing. As you might have noticed, I have a fondness for old houses, towns, and country drives. If you are into that as well, then by all means check out this small community.

Note: On the way, you will pass a place that USED to be a community. So much, in fact, that it had several churches, a school, and a factory. Now NOTHING remains except for a church. You can’t even see any ruins. Amazing how something like that can just dry up and disappear.
