Old Talbott Tavern

(#711) from Kentucky Life Program 711 (2001)

Owners John and Betty Kelly share footage of the fire that nearly destroyed Bardstown’s historic Old Talbott Tavern in 1998 and talk about how it has been restored and updated. The first stagecoach stop west of the Alleghenies, the tavern welcomed 19th-century guests ranging from royal entourages to Abraham Lincoln to Jesse James.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
