  • The Buffalo Elementary School’s gym has a history that reaches back to the 1800s when it was built not as a gymnasium, but as an academic wing of East Lynn College, which longtime Buffalo resident John T. Meers said originally opened in 1860.


    “The original structure was T-shaped and what is now the gym contained classrooms which the college used,” Meers said. “When they separated the two buildings, they moved a section that became a lunchroom on the bottom floor and Masonic and Eastern Star lodge above, and the other part became a gym.”


  • Growing up in Buffalo in the 1930s and ‘40s was a lot like living in the idyllic, if fictional, Mayberry, according to local businessman Joel Ray Sprowls.

    “Everything was laid back; there was no rushing around like today,” said Sprowls, who attended Mount Tabor School and graduated from Buffalo High School in 1946.

    Though the atmosphere was relaxed, Sprowls and the other kids in town always found plenty to occupy them.

  • As far as local historians can tell, Buffalo started with the first house built by James Creal in 1848. In 1854, a gristmill was built on the creek, and the next year the Rev. John Duncan and W. L. Creal built a general merchandise store.
    One day in the Duncan-Creal store, someone brought in a large animal bone. It was agreed that it was the rib of a Buffalo since there were buffalo wallows along the creek. Someone suggested they should name their town “Buffalo Wallow.”

    Fortunately, “Wallow” was dropped in following years.

  • The annual Jaggers family reunion was June 23, 2013, at Sportsman’s Lake in Hodgenville.

    We were blessed with sunshine, good food, and lots of loving family. Great fellowship was always a blessing in the Kate and Everett Jaggers family. They had seven daughters, Allie, Bertha, Virgie, Sallie, Mary, Iva and Pauline. This family tradition was started many years ago at the request of Kate and Everett.

    They wanted their descendants to stay close. To this day we still carry on this annual event.
