A Historical Marker for Camp Boyle
There is a revival movement to erect a Kentucky Historical Marker at the site of Camp Boyle, now in the limits of Columbia. Several years ago a project was announced that did not materialize, except for several monetary donations and pledges. The project is now revived and on the move; this time we intend it will be completed.
This historical marker will preserve the history of Camp Boyle, of the Civil War era in South Central Kentucky, will serve as a memorial of all those men who spent time here, and will be a tribute to those who suffered and died for a cause in which they believed.
The historical marker project is a lengthy and expensive one. The Kentucky Historical Society Marker Program requires specific paperwork—which is nearly completed, numerous letters of support—which is underway, and a sizable monetary donation for the physical marker. The original donations collected are ear-marked and banked by the Adair Heritage Association, a non-profit group based in Columbia, which works to preserve the history of the county. Additional contributions may be delivered to the AHA, mailed to AHA, P.O. Box 963, Columbia, KY 42728, or to the Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY 42728. All donations are tax deductible, AHA is a 501(c)(3) group.
This project was formulated Chris Bennett and other like-minded historical preservationists, including Alan Reed and Rev. Paul Patton. Rev. Patton and Mike Watson have agreed to script the sign. At this point the Project needs donations for the actual marker, and letters of support to present with the application to Kentucky Historical Society Marker Program.

Old Photos of Homes and Businesses in Columbia
The Adair County Genealogy Society is working with others to acquire copies of old home and businesses that at one time was in the City limits of Columbia. If you have any of these such photos would you be so kind as to bring the to the Adair County Public Library, 307 Greensburg St., Columbia, Ky. 42728, the ladies at the library can scan your photos and then hand them right back to you to take home. We are hoping to obtain enough of these photos that we can publish a booklet with all the photos that we obtain. We are hoping you will be so kind as to help us get this project off the ground.
For more information call Ernie or Lee Ann at the Adair County Public Library at 270-384-2472 for more information.
