I was 10 years old when we moved to Valley Station .From 1947 .My family has a history there with my great grandfather moved to Valley Station from Germany and there built a home for his family.He bought 15oo acres where Windsor Forest now is located because of the hickory trees.He was a ax handle maker.He farmed the land and provided for his family.My grandfather Henry Herbert built a house on what is now called wildwood lane (MY mother named the road)My grandfather had 10 children and my dad was the youngest.All 10 children were born in the house on wildwood Lane.All that remains the same is the Herbert Cementary off Arnoldtown rd and Old Third street rd. Its a beautiful peaceful place they chose as their finally resting place.We are the last of the Herberts that take care of the cementary because of our respect for our ancestors.Its really sad when you think of all the rich history of all of the people that have lived in valley station and no one has preserved the history.

Wow! I remember that Teen club. I helped get it cleaned up to open. Had a great time there until it was closed. I rode my bike up to the root beer stand all the time for a Jug of root beer. I lived on Rainbow drive. Good memories.

I have many good memories about Valley Station and the surrounding area. I went to the old Medora School that was on Pendleton Rd. and Mrs. Pendleton was the principal there. I went to the new Medora School that was brick and built on Dixie Highway and graduated from Valley High. Valley was a great school back then. I remember when Valley Village was first built. Does anyone remember Lewis' Grocery that was on Pendleton Rd.? They let people put their groceries on a tab and even delivered them to your house. I loved the Ranch House but they closed after it was reported that their hamburger meat had something in it that it wasn't suppose to have, can't remember what. Dixie Highway was actually gravel down around Pendleton Rd. when we first moved there. It was a year or two later that they blacktopped it. No skirts above the knees at Valley back then. I remember when Dixie Manor was first built. Anyone remember the old Woolworth store in the little shopping center by Bethany Ln.? They had the best hot fudge sundays on the planet.

Hey Knows, I live across from Medora Park where the old Medora school was, at Pendleton and Orell. My mom went there when she was little and living on Kelly Ln. I went to Medora on Deering Rd then graduated from Valley, I also remember Mrs. Pendleton. I used to go to Lewis grocery everyday. Pete Lewis and his wife who owned the store are still living and live at Pendelton and Pauleys Gap Rd. Those were the good days. Were you here when they had the fish frys and fast pitch softball games at the old Medora School? The school was shut down but the building was still there..

Yes, I was there then. They even had a donkey game or two. The Lewis' original store was at Pendleton and Pauleys Gap and I use to go to that one everyday. We caught the school bus there. There were some really good people in that area and I know some that are still there.

I also caught the bus at Pendleton and Pauleys Gap Rd. Bus #537 driven by Mrs. King.But instead of Lewis Grocery there, it was Millers Grocery when I caught the bus. The store did burn down, trapping Mrs Miller inside and killing her. Her husband was named Tommy, their children, Paul and Joyce. Paul still lives on the old Miller Place on Pendleton, the house sits on the hill with that open field in front of it. Joyce lives in Georgia. Do you remember the McQuillens, Dalmer McQuillen was a policeman who suffered a fatal heart attack in his 40's, they lived on out Pendleton and a neighbor of Mrs. Pendelton. I also worked for Mr Miller hauling hay, and I also worked for Gilbert Blessit who lived down from us on Pauleys Gap..Oh the memories!!

Yes, Yes, Yes, I know all of these people and no doubt know you but I'm probably several years older than you. I just don't want to give my name on here and you probably don't want to give your name either. It was actually Pete Lewis' mom and dad that ran the store when it was at Pendleton and Pauleys Gap, that was before the Miller family ran it. I remember when Peggy died but I had moved from the area at that time. Marvin King that drove the school bus. His dad was probably one of the best stone masons in the area. He taught two of my brothers how to lay stone and they worked for him for several years. He was a good man.

Oh, it just hit me, I do know who you are and yes, I'm several years older than you. I lived down on the other side of Blessits. I was a teenager when you and your brother were probably in grade school. I remember you had a beautiful Collie dog.

Yes we had a Collie, my sister in law lives in the house we used to live in then. Sadly both my brothers passed away, the youngest in 2000 and then my brother 1 yr younger than I died in 2002. We used to run around with Kevin McQuillen, he went to Ohio for trainng in a Ryans Steakhouse,and as he was taking inventory that night, a employee that worked there broke in and shot him, sadly also Kevin wasn't discovered untill, the next morning lying in the cooler. Do you know Mike Hendricks? Wow its a small World.And BTW I'm 60 yrs old now. Remember Macky Mudd, they lived in that block house that sits on that long drive that goes back into Blessits farm. You turn right there where Wilbert Blessit and his wife lived, their kids were called, Tack, Tony and Niecie (?)Niecie was a real pretty girl, but her and Tony are both dead now. So, did you ever file down a penny to the size of a dime to put into Mr. Lewis's outside soda machine?? Or steal some of Mr. Striebles watermelons and tomatoes he grew there on Pendelton? Oh me my brother and Kevin were bad. We all three got caught taking one of his melons, needless to say when it was all over, we never went back into that patch. My dad could give a good "whippin!" :)

Yes it is a small world. I'm not sure if I knew Mike but I did go to school with a couple of Hendricks. I believe Ronald was one of them. I know where they lived. I knew the Mudds real well and remember Macky. I went to school with his older sisters and Glen. My brothers were good friends with Howard. My brothers were all older than me and they are all dead now. My mom lived in that house until she died. I'm 69 now and retired. Yes, I knew Web's kids but they were all younger than me. Carolyn and I were always friends and when her parents' house burnt she built a new one in the same spot and I guess she still lives there. I moved out of state not long after I married but I went back to visit my mom all the time and she always kept me informed about everyone. I remember Mr. Streble and his watermelons, you are lucky he didn't shoot you, (LOL). I use to earn some spending money in the spring by picking strawberries for him. My back would feel like it was going to break and I was young then.

Yes, Mike is about a year older than me, and he does have a brother named Ronnie, I seen him about 6 months ago. His other brothers were Curtis, Kenny, and JW. He also had around 3 sisters I believe. We certainly were lucky Mr. Streble didn't shoot us.LOL. His farm has now all been sold off in 5 acre plots and now has homes built on it. Macky now lives in Meade Co., he's one person I know who hasn't changed since the 60's!! Glen, his brother passed away last year. I remember me, Macky, my brother and Tack, used to help Gilbert Blessit "cut" those boar hogs testicals off, those poor pigs.. Geeze, I could sit here and write a book! LOL

I bet you could write a book, I could too. Gilbert Blessit was a good farmer, anyone could have learned a lot from him. Yes, the Strebles started selling their farm off before my mom died. Mrs. Streble and Evelyn already had their house built across from my mom before she died. It was Ronnie and Curtis that rode the school bus with me and one of their sisters, I can't remember her name. I believe she was a little younger than Curtis. Now here is a little bit of history. That house that the Hendricks lived in use to be the L & N section forman's house and it use to be on the other side of the creek and was near the railroad tracks. My dad was the section forman there for awhile and we lived in that house when we first moved to Medora. My dad was killed when I was eleven. I can't remember what year it was that they did away with the section gangs and replaced them with that machine that can lay tracks, ties, and do all the work that the section gangs did but it had to be in the late 1950s. Anyway, the Hendricks' original house burnt and the railroad auctioned the forman's house off and they bought it and moved it across the creek to where it sits now. There were two other shotgun type houses that sat down there by the forman's house and I can't remember if they tore them down or auctioned them off too. These sat across the tracks from Bill King's farm. There use to be a gravel road that went down to them but it grew up a few years after the houses were gone and it was hard to see a road was ever there.

Mikes sisters were Dixie June, Ramona, and Gay Lynn who is my age. They also adopted a girl who went by GG, I don't remember her name. I remember my Dad telling me their house was moved there, but never did know where it came from, thanks for telling me. The other two houses on that road were tore down or actually finally fell down. The last one, I believe that Buck Razor's dad lived in. Our property on Pauleys Gap backed up to that one. My brother and I used to go back there all the time. I passed that old gravel road this morning and looked down it, no traces of it is there. Bill King and Mikes mom were brother and sister, and as I can remember, they never did get along with each other. Johnny Hendricks, Mikes dad used to get on us for chasing his pigs around. One time in the Summer, it was HOT, and Mike was working on a fence, I had sneaked some Vodka from my dads car, put it in a quart jar with ice. I walked over to Mikes house and he was burning up working on that fence. I offered him a drink and told him it was ice water, he turned that glass up and I thought he was going to die. He cussed me for two days, whenever we talk we always talk about that and laugh. Mike lives in Indiana now, and is still one of my best friends. I went squirrel hunting last year on their place, Curtis still lives there. Going back in there brings back a lot of good memories.

I just had to set and laugh when I saw your last post. I had completely forgotten about Bill and Mrs. Hendricks being brother and sister but you are right they were. My two brothers that worked for Bill use to laugh about some of the things Bill would say about them because they didn't get along. Bill was always good to us though, he loaned my mother the money to buy that house when no bank would have done it. It had to be paid off when I was 18 because that is when she stopped drawing for me from the railroad due to my dad getting killed. I laughed too at being reminded of the "Razors". Their name was actually Reesor (I know because my dad had to fill out a lot of paperwork.), but everyone called them Razor. Here is some more history. Those houses that Blessit rented out, the frame one across from the block one that the Mudds lived in, that was the old Paulley house. Mr. Paulley owned all that land in there before Blessit and that is who the road is named after. Mrs. Morris that lived on the other side of us was Mr. Paulley's daughter, was born and raised in that house and lived on that road her entire life. She use to tell about Mr. Paulley driving his old road wagon to the nearest grocery back when she was young and it taking him all day to do it. She said he would leave early of a morning before daybreak and not get home until after dark. I can't remember where she said the nearest grocery was at that time but I believe it was up around Shively, almost Louisville. She said he only did that a couple of times a year.

I don't remember Mrs. Pauley, but I did know Paul Morris, is that who married the daughter? My Dad and Paul worked together for many years at Kosmosdale Cement Co. Their daughter used to work at the old Woolworths store by Dixie and Bethany in that string of stores where the old Winn-Dixie was. They would clean out the candy bins after it was in there very long, and she would my Brother and I bags of candy, we loved her..lol..Paul used to stop and get on me and my Brother for climbing that Maple tree in out front yard, we would try to go to the top, its still there..I remember hauling hay for Blessit for a nickel and bale, then stacking it that barn of his, it was a hot job. When Macky bought a old Ford, I cant remember the year, we covered that thing with "Crazy Dasies" that Burger was giving out, they stuck on. Leter on we took that old car to the car wash at Watson Ln. and Dixie,, we had cans and cans of spray paint, and we painted that thing, it looked terrible. Did you live in the last house before going onto Weavers Run, it sat not too far off the road, its still there also, although no one is living in it.

My post yesterday disappeared so I'll try again today, LOL. Yes, Paul Morris was married to Mr. Pauley's daughter. The Pauleys were way before our time. I remember my mother asking Gilbert Blessitt if her house flooded in 1938 and he said that it didn't. He said all his cattle came up there on the road and that is where he fed them because water was all around them. So, Blessitt had bought that land from Mr. Pauley sometime before then. My youngest brother (9 years older than me) worked at the cement plant too. Paul Morris helped him get a job there after Bill King went out of business. Our house was the one between Blessitt's and Paul Morris'. I haven't been back there since my mother died but it has sold 2 or 3 times since then. It has been completely remodeled and even the driveway has been switched to the other side of the house. I heard about it and looked it up on Google Maps and could tell that it looks nothing like it use to. My mother lived there for over 40 years. Paul Morris' daughter, Betty Lou, got me my firt job at Woolworth's. I started work there on my 18th birthday. She was really good to my mother. Betty Lou died several years before my mother did. Paul Morris helped me get my first car, it was a 1960 Plymouth Belvedere. It had 1,300 miles on it when I bought it. A farmer down here in Warren County had owned it and only drove it to town on Saturdays and to church on Sundays and bought a new one every year. I loved that car.
I forget how many years that Mr. Morris had worked at that cement plant but he was there when it was privately owned by Mr. Brown. They use to tell how good Mr. Brown was to all the men that worked for him. Mr. Brown was still alive when I worked at Woolworth's and use to come in every single day for lunch and buy a fried hot dog. Well, we got a new manager in there and he was sitting close to Mr. Brown one day when he came in. Since a fried hot dog wasn't on the menu, the manager started yelling at the girl serving Mr. Brown. Mr. Brown got up and walked out of there, along with about half the people sitting at the lunch counter, and never came back. Someone asked the manager, "Don't you know who that was?" The manager said he didn't care and they explained how the local people felt about Mr. Brown. That was the same manager when Betty Lou left and I worked for about a year after that but finally left too. Betty Lou ended up with a MUCH better job at Brandise (?spelling, where they made Blue Grass Tools). I saw one of their catalogs go through the auction not long ago and it brought a little over a hundred.(If we only knew then what we know now.)
