This is a beautiful historical home that is in need of a remodel. This home is a true two story home with an abundance of room that sits nicely on a 3 acre tract of land complete with a fair barn. There are multiple fireplaces throughout the property and the tall ceilings and trim will take you on a trip back in time. The home also has a detached store building that would make a great place for a store today. This property was once the Jewel of Three Springs.

    Wonder what the brick building was used for. Maybe a store to sell produce from the farm? Would make a decent workshop.

    Another interesting town name. I wonder what the origin of “Horse Cave” is?

      The town grew up around a railroad station named for nearby Horse Cave. How the Cave got that name is still debated. 🙂

        Various explanations are given for its unusual name. One is that Native Americans[which?] or outlaws hid horses in the cave; another is that an early carriage may have lost a horse when it fell into the opening by accident; a third reason involves the 19th-century use of “horse” as slang for anything big or huge, related to a similar use of the Swedish hoss. The cave has also been known as “Hidden River Cave”, for an underground stream located inside.[5] That stream was used to power a dynamo, and for a while in the late 19th century Horse Cave was the only city in Kentucky apart from Louisville and Ashland to have electric

    Those walls would be such fun backdrops for a photographer.

    The term “horse” was once used to denote something large, for example, a “horse” chestnut, being much larger than the native English chestnuts. There are many place names across the USA that use “horse” in this manner.
