Here is a photo of Van Buren of the left side of the town. The town is in anderson. The rode on the slope of the hill on the far left is in spencer county. Enjoy it. s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com
That link doesn't work.
I also have a photo from the spencer magnet that has a us army corps of engineers officer pressing the button that would bury Van Buren. This photo was taken i think in 1983. I also have a copy of an article where farmer J C hawkins is standing. He had 118 acres to be covered over by the lake. Where he is standing in the picture id now underwater. The article is titled: Van Buren sadly awaits the day it will be the bottom of a new lake . . . The article reads:
VAN BUREN, KY- peaceful stretches of rich bottomland along the Salt River. Edward Stevens looked across his "backyard" at the the murky salt and a large expanse of tobacco yielding soil. "I've been around here for a lifetime" he said with a hint of stubborness in his voice. "And I LIKE it here". This is only a small portion of the article.
Go look up van buren before taylorsville lake on pinterest. You will find a picture of it taken from the top of a hill.Slaid Cleaves responded on 07/12/2017
