The Trabue Russell House in Columbia will be celebrating their 200th anniversary on Friday, September 17.
The Trabue Russell House was built in 1821 by Daniel Trabue on a bluff overlooking downtown Columbia. It measured 20 X 33 feet. In 1873 the Russell family bought the home and it remained in their family for 100 years. In 1974 the Adair Heritage Association acquired the home and began restoration.
In the late 1970s the Julia Miller Horton Rose Garden was established. Horton was the granddaughter of James Montgomery Russell. In 2001 the City of Columbia acquired the property and in 2007, the Adair County Garden Club did restoration of the garden and grounds.
The event will be held from 11 am until 1 pm. Author and historian Mel Hankla will be in Columbia on that date and at the house to meet visitors and sign copies of his book.
Richard Phelps will be portraying Daniel Trabue. Kentucky fare will be offered.

Based on the current number of COVID cases, AND federal, state and local guidelines in place, the decision has been made to POSTPONE the following events planned for September at the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery.
- Sept. 9th - Wounded Warrior Fishing Event
- Sept. 21st - Catch A Smile Senior Fishing Derby
- Sept. 22nd - Reaching For Rainbows Special Needs Kids Derby (Adair, Clinton, and Russell Counties)
- Sept. 23rd - Reaching For Rainbows Special Needs Kids Derby (Casey, Cumberland and Wayne Counties)
Because these events are focused on targeted audiences such as wounded servicemen with varying health issues, special needs children and seniors over 62, and with the utmost consideration for the health and well being of the participants, volunteers and staff, this is the best decision for all.
Wolf Creek staff, volunteers and Friends of Wolf Creek NFH, Inc members, eagerly look forward to these events each year. For more information visit their website the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery website or Facebook page.
T.J. Samson Community Hospital has made the difficult decision to cancel the T.J. Samson Women’s Conference that was scheduled for Thursday, October 28, 2021. The recent surge in COVID-19 cases makes an in-person event of this size impractical. T.J. Samson Community Hospital will be issuing a full refund to everyone that submitted payment for pre-registration and booth space. Please allow several weeks to receive your refund in the mail. It is our hope that we can hold this popular event sometime in 2022.
