National Registry of Historic Places

Fifteen sites have been approved in Kentucky for listing in the National Register of Historic Places, and the National Park Service will consider the nominations for eligibility.

The Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board approved the sites late last month. A decision on their designation is expected in 60 to 90 days.

The sites approved were W.G. Swann Tobacco Co. in Murray, C.A. Baldwin Farmstead in Christian County, Peabody-Fordson Historic District in Clay County, Kentucky Buggy Co. in Owensboro, Roscoe Goose House in Louisville, First Vineyard in Jessamine County, Frank Duveneck House and Studio in Covington, Gardner Farmstead in Magoffin County, Stearns Golf Course in McCreary County, Ceralvo Masonic Hall and School in Ohio County and Versailles Elementary School.

The Charles M. Moore Insurance Co. in Bowling Green and a multiple-property nomination for houses of architect James Ingram in Bowling Green rounded out the list.

A pre-civil war house in Barren County is being recommended for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. The 1855 property has been known as the Bybee House for its builder, Barren County native William Bybee. He was a farmer, livestock trader, and land speculator.
