Raywick Things to Do
This is the Old Raywick Bank,...
This is the Old Raywick Bank, which is now actually the Raywick Food Bank. I'm not positive what a food bank actually is, so I'm not going to try to guess. It is across the street from the bar though.
Missy's out of the Way Cafe: The best food in this town!
This is a truly unique resturant, one of a kind. Nestled in the heart of Raywick, this steakhouse is unlike any other you will see. While dining your eyes don't have time to rest from the wall to wall decorations. They have an awesome menu, and an even better staff. Everything is cooked right in front of you by Missy herself. It is definatly worth the drive.
Favorite Dish: The best food here is the steak, but everything is good.
Here's a picture of a church...
Here's a picture of a church in Raywick... there's a couple, I believe. I think this one is the Catholic church, but don't hold me to that.
The only way here is by...
The only way here is by driving! Or maybe horse... you could gallop across the fields of Kentucky! :) Ah, but if you REALLY REALLY want to find this place, it's at the intersection of state roads 527 and 84.
From Lebanon... take 84 west
From Bardstown... take state road 49 to 527 south
Or... from I-65, take the exit for state road 84.. go east on it... you'll go right by Lincoln's Birthplace in Hodgenville
You could walk from one side of the town to the other in a matter of minutes, I have no doubt. You could bike it even more quickly, and if you're driving, blink and you'll miss it! :)
Raywick Local Customs
Boy, you ain't from round...
Boy, you ain't from round these here parts, now are ye?!?! Um, you may get some weird looks from people if you're from out of town. I know in the 1970's my father went into the bar to ask if they knew someone in Raywick (they were lost), but whomever was like, 'Who's asking?' 'Who wants to know?' ... ya know... suspicious of the guy from Chicago. ;)
Raywick Warnings and Dangers
Well, this may just go for...
Well, this may just go for Marion County because I don't think you have anything to worry about in Raywick. Marion County is known around here for being a large drug producing area (i.e., Marijuana) in the state. I've read a warning before on a biking site saying to be careful in this county because of just that. Basically, don't go down any very lonely looking roads or driveways or private property or gravel roads or dirt roads... hehe, you know what I mean... stick to the main routes. I think I may avoid biking here because of just that. You should be fine in the car.
History of the city is found...
Favorite thing: History of the city is found on a typical Kentucky History placard (which you can find all over the state).
