Rothwell, Kentucky is now nothing more than a small cluster of houses and a few abandoned buildings. The old general store is boarded up tight, but there is a tiny old post office next door full of posters and cards from WWII. Rothwell is located on US 460 between Jeffersonville and Frenchburg.

Upper Spencer is a very well-preserved abandoned church on Highway 713 in Montgomery County. According to the sign, it was built in 1845. There is an addition to the building that is falling in, but other than that, the church seems to be in good shape. I would have loved to have gotten into the main part of the building, but it was locked up tight, and the windows were too high for me to peek into. I'll see what I can find out and hopefully I'll have an update on this lovely structure soon!

Greenbrier Lake

This small, lonely lake is located in Jeffersonville. Turn off US 460 onto the very twisty and turny McCormick Road. After driving past several miles of small farms and lovely country homes, the road leads over a peak from which Greenbrier Lake is visible. I accidentally found it while driving around aimlessly one day and was totally surprised! But as many times as I have driven by it since, I have never actually seen anyone here.
