wow awesome story, how cool that they traced the Green family and invited them to the house

 

been some time since that wallpaper was stripped from those walls - I'm going to show this thread to Dawn when she's complaining our house needs redecorating   :D

 

the Call Distillery stencil is sooooo neat

 

thanks for another priceless history lesson Mike, would love to visit there with you sometime.

Great Rich!
I didn't know you had been there.
A very historical place pertaining to Jack Daniel history.

Mike you are a fantastic reporter, always looking for places loaded with stories, I would be like you if I lived in your country ... find newspapers of that time 1898 on walls and paint on wood ... Thank you for his photos and history

Thanks for the knowledge that you pass on to us Mike.

 

I have fond memories of my trip to the distillery and a big chunk of them are from the tour that you gave us and looking through the albums and interesting artifacts that you have acquired of the years.

 

I hope to do a tour with you again this year when I am over there.

 

Thanks Mike.
