Many old buildings, homesteads and such have been renovated and are now displayed, or open to the public to view. For those of you that have gathered your information on your family genealogy, and are planning a trip to the town/county that your family members once lived, it might be nice to know what is there to make your trip more comfortable, and informative.

Anyone that would like to list a place with a historical past, please e-mail the information, and I will post it in here. As usual, please be sure to put your name and e-mail address in your message. Also, be sure to put FAYETTE CO TODAY in the subject line.
