Fancy Farm church makes list of historic places

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A rural church in Fancy Farm that's home to Kentucky's premier political event has been approved for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Kentucky Historic Preservation Review Board approved the designation for the St. Jerome's Catholic Church complex on Friday. The National Park Service has final say, which is expected within a couple of months.

Politicians gather at St. Jerome each August for political speeches.

Also approved at the state level for the National Register were the James William Kite Store in Boone County, the Goodall Building in Danville, the Southeast Greyhound Line Building in Lexington, the Brown-Henry House and Point Pleasant in Frankfort, Bridgeport School in Franklin County, the Hiram and Art Stamper House in Knott County, and Norfolk Farm Tenant Log House in Trimble County.
