Oldham County, Kentucky Colonial Trade Fair 2014

Photos by Kathy Cummings

The Annual Oldham County Trade Faire brought out authors, speakers, demonstrators and re-enactors. While the Oldham County Courthouse Square hosts it’s Art on the Green, the Oldham County History Center hosts the Trade Faire. Modern artists and craftsmen on the green contrast sharply with the craftsmen in period dress. 


Firing a cannon in the middle of downtown LaGrange is a challenge for members of The Painted Stone Settlers. But it is all worth it, when a child’s eyes light up as her dad takes her photo with Painted Stone member Kent Mckinney.
