"This is a picture of the first piece of a Road constructed in the State of Kentucky. The view was taken from a point about one-half mile from town. The Old Lords of 'The Road' (Landlords of Note): William Bickly, Corbin Gallegher, Amos Butler, George Harrington, George Payne, Fairview; Holliday, Blue Licks; 'Governor' Herndon, Mayslick; Rankins, 'Throckmortons;' Edward Martin; Stitt (Millersburg); Talbot (Paris); 'Doggetts' (Blue Licks). Descriptions of these old taverns of the early and middle years of the last century would give a lively conception of the social life of The Road at that period."

Part of Wilson Family Photographic Collection, ca. 1840-1959
