Celebrate anniversary of Jack Jouett’s ride
Celebrate the 236th anniversary of Jack Jouett’s ride to save American Independence at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Jack Jouett House, 255 Craigs Creek Road, Versailles.
Mel Hankla, as a part of the Kentucky Chautauqua program, will present Simon Kenton. Thinking he had killed a boy during a fight, Kenton fled Virginia at age 16. By the time he was 20, Kenton had landed on the shores of the Ohio River in what is now Mason County. He carved out a remarkable career as an explorer and frontiersman. A self-appointed welcomer-in-chief, he greeted early settlers as they arrived in — what was then — the Far West.
Refreshments and tours of the house will be offered following the presentation. Admission is free.
