Hopefully they will put a Memorial up for Burgess. It would only be fitting.

why would anyone put a cemetery there? who would want to be buried between 23 and the river.does not sound like a place for eternal peace. the noise and the 500 year flood plain are two dangers.

It is supposed to be a veterans cemetery of which there are very few . No doubt will be bringing Mr Booth government money for years .

That house is named in the.. National Register of Historic places..I could be wrong but isnt it illegal to tear anything like that down?..and if it is we should all report it..I dont think just one person will make a difference..Jim Booth has enough money to keep anyone in the court house quiet or anyone thats involved.

We sat on our bu--s and did nothing for years while this place deteriorated, it became an eyesore and still we did nothing. Now Booth bought it and it belongs to him and there is nothing we can or should do about it because we had the chance and blew it, now let the man alone he paid for it and what ever he does with it is his business and why all the interest now?. We got used to it being there, now we will have to get used to it being gone. We need to stop blaming a man that did nothing but buy it, anyone with the money could have bought it but they didn't and people want to bash this man mostly because he has money, not because of this farm, seems people delight in hateing people with money in this area, why?. The Booths, clevengers, Kirks and others here that have money do nothing to hurt anyone, they help more than anything by providing jobs some would otherwise not have, leave them alone for a change.

From what I hear, blame the historical society. Wasn't it left to them? And didn't they sell it after it was plundered?

came by there today and it does look like an entrance to cemetary. They are laying up the block now. They also moved some trees. There is an entrance to go in and one to go out with a divider in between.

Don't know wasn't interested at the time and to late now so might as well forget it. Let's let this be a lesson, if we want to preserve something get on board before there is nothing left to preserve. Many old structures have been torn down or fell down just like the covered bridge crossing blain creek out near bradley gap, it went the way the Burgess farm did, fell down due to lack of interest and upkeep, that's just how it is here, no one wants to spend their money and want to tell someone that has it how to use it. Sad case.
ASK

Winchester, KY

If I passed there daily or occasionally I would pull off and ask what they are building, why speculate when you can ask?. All they can do is say move on or tell you what is being built, nothing wrong with asking.

What is this ridiculous obsession with that propriety that people have?

It sounds like a persecution of Booth

It's his dam land let it go.
The House

Winchester, KY

After the tornados that passed thru in March the House was deemed structurely unsound to inhabit. Yes I hate to see such a fine piece of history be destroyed, but anyone who knew Doc Burgess knows that he would have rather seen the house be torn down then some innocent bystander get hurt or possible killed in it.
