Old Crow Inn

Danville, Kentucky

Duane and Eva Bristow's

34th Wedding Anniversary - April 1999

For our wedding anniversary our son, David, and his wife, Tisha, often get us tickets to a performance at the Norton Center for the Arts at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and a night at some nearby Bed and Breakfast. In previous years we have seen performances by Glen Campbell, Lynn Redgrave, The Smothers Brothers, and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons among others.

This year we went to a great performance of Irish Music by The Chieftains with Eileen Ivers, Irish Fiddler, and Cara Butler and Donny Golden, traditional Irish dancers. The Chieftains are celebrating their 36th anniversary this season. They have won six Grammy awards.

We stayed overnight with Andre' and Linda Brousseau at The Old Crow Inn outside Danville. Built by John Crow about 1776, the Inn is the oldest stone house west of the Allegheny Mountains. Built to withstand indian attacks, the house has native limestone walls up to two feet thick. Native timbers were cut on the farm to use in building the house. Black Walnut was used for the doors and woodwork, Cherry and American Chestnut for all of the beams, floor joists and rafters and Yellow Poplar and White Ash for the floors. The Inn has 13 rooms plus 3 basements, 2 attic rooms and 5 bathrooms.

We stayed in the Granary added to the main house about 1800. This room was used at that time for storing grain used for food for the inhabitants of the Inn.
