Walk into Town - Bardstown, Kentucky

Good morning,

We walked from the Civil War Museum area into Bardstown to have some lunch before the battle reenactment.  Everywhere you turn in Bardstown you find more historical markers.
Fighters from Bardstown even participated in the War of Texas Independence.
This is a part of the museum complex that we didn't visit.  We were on our way into town and wanted to have lunch and get back in time for the battle that we had heard so much about earlier.
Beautiful old homes are so well cared for.

We at lunch at Mammy's where we had eaten dinner the night before.  Images of our dinner at Mammy's are here.
 We could have hailed a taxi, but walking was good for us.  ;)
 Antiques and crafts are for sale everywhere in Bardstown. 

 And, there are churches on almost every corner.
 What a beautiful day in Bardstown.
 A half block from the Methodist Church is the Presbyterian Church.

 We enjoyed our walk "off the main drag" of Bardstown as we headed back to the Civil War encampment for the afternoon.

More to come!  I hope you continue to enjoy these images as much as we enjoyed being in Bardstown.

All the best,

Having never been to Kentucky, it's nice to see a bit of history through your eyes. Love the stained glass window on the church!
