Clark County resident Steve Caudill portrays the Kentucky frontiersman Daniel Boone while speaking to a group of eighth-grade students attending Clark Middle School. Caudill dispelled many Daniel Boone myths, including the one that Boone wore a coon skin cap.
Caudill, right photo, also talked to the students about Strode Station Settlement in Clark County, the lives of early pioneers in the settlement and the proximity of the settlement to their school. Displayed in the foreground are several of the items Boone would have carried with him, including a flintlock rifle. Listening in with the group was Caudill's daughter, Shelby Caudill, seated at left.
Caudill captured the attention of a group of eighth-grade students, top photo, while telling stories of the Strode Station Settlement just off the Bypass and Lexington Road and the graves from that first settlement being moved to the Winchester Cemetery when the Bypass was built. Caudill, of Winchester, has been recognized by the Boone Society as the official Daniel Boone re-enactor. Listening to Caudill are, seated in front from left, Jennifer Berryman, Amy Kao and Rachel Wade.
