I never thought I’d own a historic home, let alone one of the first settled in the midwest, yet here I am sitting at an antique table in my 1700s Farmhouse hoping my internet stays on long enough for me to upload this blog, Moving Into Our 1700s Farmhouse. It’s an adjustment going from the heart of Colorado to the vast rural fields of Kentucky, but in all honesty, I’m kind of loving it.
So how did we go from Denver to the hollers? I don’t want to bore you with the whole story, but basically my husband lost his job due to Covid-19 and God provided this opportunity, so we took it! The original home still sits on the unincorporated land that used to be Virginia territory before the commonwealth state was formed. The original deed to our home is kept in the same courthouse records as Abe Lincoln’s marriage certificate and dates the home at 1792.
But enough of the talk… I really can’t wait any longer to show you around, so let’s get to it.
