Clayton’s Collection

Swamp Valley sign The Swamp Valley Museum

In Menifee County—the sign says it’s “half way between Possum Hollow and Lizzard Ridge”—you’ll find Swamp Valley, where Clayton Wells is happy to show visitors around his homespun “museum and novelty shop.” The exhibits, housed in several buildings on the property, represent more than a century’s worth of “Kentucky life,” from birth (midwives’ equipment) to death (a coffin-making shop). On his tour, host Byron Crawford also checks out a 19th-century buggy, antique books and newspapers, and “The John Poplin’s Civil War Home.”

The museum is located eight miles east of Frenchburg on Highway 460.

Rounding Up the Goods

Cowgirl Attic

She’s never been to Texas and doesn’t own a horse, but Karen Payne of Lexington thinks of herself as a cowgirl in spirit. So when the former jewelry designer decided to open a little antique shop, she named it Cowgirl Attic. The merchandise also includes “all kinds of eclectic junk,” and Karen regularly scours condemned houses for items that might be useful in her home-renovation business.

The Hub of the Matter

Hubcap Man

If you’re looking for that hard-to-find hubcap, Lincoln County is the place and Don Wright is the man to see. He’s been collecting and trading in these automotive accessories for years, and sells them from a roadside stand where roosters and roadsters rest side by side.
