(Not So) Old Kentucky Home

(Not So) Old Kentucky Home - longweekends.comScottwood Bed & Breakfast

By Betsa Marsh
Long Weekends - Spring/Summer 2007

With dramatic pines sheltering its wings and the South Elkhorn Creek bubbling behind, it looks as if this venerable Midway Kentucky farmhouse has been tucked into its cove off Leestown Road since the commonwealth began.

Yet the house and setting have coalesced only since 1971, when the 18th-century structure was moved from Ironworks Pike in Scott County and resettled outside Midway in Woodford County. So it was natural that the home's new name would become an amalgam of the two: Scottwood.

Couples, too, like to spend time beneath this stately roof, first put on by abolitionist Simeon True in 1795. Some choose the elegant Williamsburg room — Kentucky was once, after all, Virginia's largest county — near the home's keeping room, full of presidential memorabilia.

Other couples book the entire upstairs Shaker Suite, with antique quilts, rockers and a personal sitting room. It's homage to the Shaker heritage of the region, highlighted at Harrodsburg's Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill.

John McEvoy - The Significant Seven, a Jack Doyle Mystery

The Significant Seven
by John McEvoy

Seven lifelong friends and racing fans from their student days at the University of Wisconsin strike it lucky at Saratoga Race Track when they combine to win a plus million dollar Pick Six. They subsequently use some of those profits to buy race horses, one of which, The Badger Express, turns out to be a sensational runner, stallion, and money maker. Seven years later, the men become targets of a professional assassin, an ex-Navy SEAL and Iraq private security guard named Orth. They begin dying, one by one. Jack Doyle returns to the race track, volunteering to aid FBI agents in a search for criminals fixing races. Doyle then becomes involved in protecting Rene Rison, the favored daughter of the Significant Seven’s leader Arnie Rison. Jack Doyle, as always irreverent, observant, opinionated, sometimes mistaken but always persistent, eventually manages to find answers to the questions of who is fixing the races and who is having members of the Significant Seven killed off.
