Historic Home In Ruddle's Mills

Circa 1780

Ruddles Mills is the third oldest settlement in Kentucky and the oldest continuously inhabited community in the state. In the late 1700's there were four working mills in the village. Ruddles Mills was once considered as the location of the county seat of Bourbon County.

Grew up as a toddler on a farm in Ruddles' Mills Years later, our farm house was being dismanteled and a log cabin was discovered within the other structure. My understanding is that it was declared a historical site and moved to some nearby farm...? Used to be a Fish Hatchery near the turn off to our place...that is all I remember.
