Historic House Tour
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, &lt;i&gt;Westward into Kentucky,&lt;/i&gt; 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&amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;amp;#039;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.
