SPEEDWELL TENNESSEE STONE FENCE

Raining and dark. I backed my car in a drive to turn around and
shot this before I pulled out. I love this place.
My great grandpa had a farm in Speedwell.

Larry, not to far from Speedwell is Shakerstown, KY ... a place you need to visit (Google it). The Shakers built the town (obviously) and since they practiced celibacy, the breed finally died out ... there's also a Shakertown up in New England somewhere. In any event, the Shakers prided themselves on manual labor and many of these rural Kentucky stone fences were laid by the Shakers (no pun intended). I guess it was a way of working off their "frustrations". As you show in this shot, they make for 'purty seenery' as they say in that part of Kentucky.
