I wish the grandkids or whoever is now over that would put a little money in it and upgrade it. I remember I loved to go there as a child but the last time I was there its a pity to see how runned down it is. In the early 80"s that was such a booming place....they had anything you wanted to buy. I just don't know why they don't fix it back up to the way it used to be...."they would make a fortune" it would pay for itself. Needs to be UPGRADED!!!!

Yea i agree. It's got pretty bad. I hardly ever go because there's never anything there. I stopped out there yesterday for the first time in a long time and there was nothing. I was actually looking for some memorial flowers and the vendor that was seet up selling them was asking 2 prices. The grounds are so run down. There's mudholes that a small child could drown in. Weeds ain't cut, it's sure not what it used to be. They'e made it worth the drive to Bullcreek.

Who ever is in charge really needs to do some work on it. Its such a fun place to go when you have a free day. Its a shame to see it just waste away, it wouldn't take much to fix it.You can usually find stuff at good cheap prices but if you don't fix it up no ones going to come there anymore. I always go there and watch the animals get auctioned off. And look around and i hate to see it in this condition so please fix it up.

Some of the people have nifty stuff there. A lot of the stalls in the back stay empty though and aren't maintained, and there seems to be a lot more people selling things out the back of their vehicles in the bottom across the road. If they put some effort into it, I'd say it would come back. There's still a few people there who sell good stuff.

I basically grew up at the Paintsville Stockyard as a child. I went every single Saturday with my Pap. We would get up around 5 and load up the truck with whatever livestock he was selling that day and head out. Pap always said, "There ain't no use in going if you're gonna get there after 7 AM - everyone leaves after that" haha

I have so many beautiful memories of this place and not a day goes by that one of those memories don't enter in to my mind.

My Pap passed away a month ago today and what I wouldn't give to have one more day at that Stockyard with him.
