LANDMARK REVELATIONS
Danville historians conclude that log cabin didn't belong to freed slave Willis Russell

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, February 20, 2014 7:58 AM EST
DANVILLE, Ky.


Historians in central Kentucky say their research has found that a landmark log cabin in Danville was not the home of freed slave Willis Russell as long thought.

Carolyn Crabtree and Mary Girard told The Advocate-Messenger that their research also found that Willis never taught in the pre-1795 cabin.

Crabtree and Girard plans to present their findings in a lecture next week at the Boyle County library.

Boyle Landmark Trust President Barbara Hulette says even though Willis didn't live in the home, he still is an important figure in the area. Hulette says he lived and taught in downtown Danville, just not in the log cabin.

Hulette says the cabin, current called the Willis Russell House, will be renamed the Willis Russell Memorial Log Cabin.
