Log house holds decades of history

Couple delays bulldozing house as they inventory documents

By Linda Ireland

A couple of months ago, Greg and Bonnie Ballard purchased about 100 acres and an old farmhouse on Bardstown Road at auction.
They wanted to expand their farming operation and expected to have the house bulldozed as soon as possible.
But when they walked inside, they had second thoughts. Inside the frame house is a two-story log house, built about 1890. The huge old logs are visible in a corner near the front door. The original stone fireplaces and hand-hewn handrail are still inside. There’s even a “Harry Potter” style room under the stairs.
