Sad news reported by the Kentucky Trust for Historic Preservation in a Facebook post yesterday:
We’re truly sickened by the loss of this home, the namesake of Boyle County. The Trust worked tirelessly in efforts with local preservationists to find a viable option to preserve this important place. After many options and a full value purchase offer for the house and farm, the owners opted to demolish to build a new home one the same site, forever destroying an important legacy for the county and state. We must find ways to ensure the preservation of our communities important historic places before more are lost! Please consider an easement to protect your historic home, contact us for more information.
