2021-10-13 - Downtown Columbia, KY - Photo by Linda Waggener,

The alleys around the Square took the vehicles to their destinations with a little guidance from law enforcement. It was so good to be able to watch the little train delivering families from one side of town to the other, and to see so many people strolling around the old Courthouse, booth and window shopping and dining. It was the one time that fear of getting run over didn't have to hamper shoppers and visitors.
