"The Renick Rifle and Gunmaking in Kentucky" will be the topic of a special program at the Bluegrass Heritage Museum at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 7. The program will take the place of the museum's usual Second Thursday program.
Jimmy Caudill, who was born and raised on the site of Strode Station in Clark County will speak. He is a longtime collector of Native American artifacts and since childhood has been interested in Kentucky's frontier settlement period.
For many years his grandparents and parents operated the Caudill Implement Co., which they acquired from the McCormick Brothers. The company made bluegrass seed harvesters.
