    • Event Description

      The original brick house of Col. Dan and Mary Trabue was built in 1823-25.  Trabue was one of the founders of Columbia and involved in many historic events of the early United States.  He wrote a narrative of his life which was put in book form, <i>Westward into Kentucky,</i> and edited by Chester Raymond Young.   Through the years other families lived in the house and built additions; the Russell family members lived here for more than 100 years - thus the name, Trabue Russell House.  The house was given to the City of Columbia, which offers it for meetings and special ocassions for a nominal charge.  Displays in the house include many photographs of people who made an impact on Columbia and Kentucky history.  A garden kept up by  Adair County Garden Club members enhances the property.  A booklet on Trabue's life is available for $3.00.  Those interested in hosting an event at the special Trabue Russell House may do so by contacting the City of Columbia at 270-384-2501.
