Biography/History

In 1879, Myron Barker, a major tobacco broker, set up residence on land that he called Richlawn Farm in Carrollton, Kentucky. He raised tobacco and operated as an independent broker until 1902 when he sold his interest to the American Tobacco Co. In the early 1900’s, after Myron’s death, the farm land was owned by Adelaide (Barker) Fisher, Myron’s daughter. She and her husband, William Fisher, built a summer home on the property. In 1918, Adelaide and William lost their house to a fire and they began a rebuilding process over the next five years. Sadly, nearly one year before the home was finished, Adelaide became ill and passed away. At that time, William Fisher sold the land along with the nearly completed home to Adelaide’s brother, Ralph M. Barker (married to Nell Long Barker), whom completed work on Highland House in 1923. Richlawn Farm was significant to citizens of Carroll County as it was a place of social events and gatherings. During holidays such as Christmas and Fourth of July, the Richlawn yard would be elaborately decorated. Ralph M. Barker owned the R.M. Tobacco Company, started the Carrollton Phone System, the Carrollton Cannery and was a prominent local businessman. In addition, he was known for his love of dogs and at one time owned 37 Great Danes.

Highland House was built in the eclectic style and has features of many types of architecture. According to the Carrollton Tourism Website, “The stucco façade and glazed clay tile roof are Mediterranean revival. The Palladian window and fanlight over the entryway are Federal. Groupings of 3 and 4 windows are Arts & Crafts. The multi-diamond paned windows are Tudor and the subtle use of half-hidden fluted columns in the facade echoes the Greek revival style.” Following Ralph M. Barker’s death, Highland House had a series of owners and the structure began to slowly deteriorate. In 1996, Don and Ruth Mougey of Iowa, purchased the land and began restoring Highland House. They focused on maintaining original details and now operate a bed and breakfast out of the home. In the year 2000, Highland House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Thelma Carraco, whom donated this collection, is referenced as Bai Hughes throughout the films. She married Paul Carraco, who worked for and with Ralph M. Barker, and had two sons, Malcolm and Dan Carraco. “Bai” was born in Eloise, Kentucky and described herself as a mountaineer. Paul Carraco was a University of Kentucky College of Agriculture graduate (1937), and served as president of the Carroll County Farm Bureau, the Carroll County Fair Board, and the Kentucky Ohio Valley Artificial Breeding Association. He was also a founding member of the Kentucky Polled Hereford Association, and served on the board of the First National Bank in Carrollton, Kentucky. He also owned the Sixth Street Tobacco Warehouse and the Golden Burley Tobacco Warehouse.
