Overview


Boone County, an enlightening new volume of vintage images,

recaptures the early days of a quiet, conservative community

dedicated to the joys and responsibilities of their faith, their families,

and farming their land. Comprised of more than 200 images, most

of which were contributed by residents descended from early Boone

County families, this journey back to the early days of Kentucky's

northernmost county celebrates the spirit of the county's residents

and honors their experience from the 1880s to the 1940s.

From the county's northern boundary at the Ohio River, where

the Anderson Ferry has run continuously since 1817, to the rolling

pastures of the southern region, this collection captures the unique

personalities of rural communities prior to the wave of development

that enveloped the county after the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky

International Airport began in 1947.

Meet the Author


With a variety of photographs--many previously unpublished-- accompanied by interesting and informative historical information, authors Susan M. Cabot and Michael D. Rouse take us on a delightful trip down memory lane that invites lifelong residents to look back and remember and enables those new to the area to view the communities as they once were. The year 1998 marks the county's 200th anniversary, and in celebration, the authors have worked closely with local individuals to create this rich

compendium of the county's past. This volume is a tribute to two centuries of the lives of Boone Countians and pays homage to those who have received little recognition for their contribution to making the county what it is today.
