Scenic Adair County: Memorable view, from Louie B. Nunn Parkway, Gradyville, KY

2005-12-21 - Gradyville, Adair CO, KY - Photo Staff. The most memorable scenic view on one of America's most pleasant drives, the Louie B. Nunn Parkway, is this one the eastbound traffic gets of Gradyville, KY betwen mile markers 41 and 42. The little white church, center, sticks in most people's minds. It is the Gradyville Baptist Church and it is still active. In the center, background, there are mostly residences, but the remains of Walker Bros. Store, hardly visible in the photo, is a reminder that this was once a thriving business center, with a bank, general store, hotel, millinery factory, and mills. Peaceful as it is today, the valley was the site of the worst disaster in Adair County history, the July 7, 1907 Gradyville flood.
