Rock Spring House

Rock Spring House

Rock Spring House
South of Salem Road/Locust Creek on Route KY 1159
Brooksville, Bracken County, KY

Significance: The Rock Spring House Complex is a contributing element in the Woolcott Historic District. The Rock Spring House was originally located north of the community of Woolcott on the Ohio River. The flood of 1913 moved the house off its original foundation. Augusta Tietz, the second wife of James Hugh Murray II, had the structure moved to its present location. It is presently owned by Howard Murray, a descendant. The house is a one-story, three bay wood frame structure sitting on a laid stone foundation.

Wayne Holton House
Salem Ridge Road & KY State Route 1159
Brooksville, Bracken County, KY

Significance: The H. West Farm Complex is a contributing part of the Woolcott Historic District which was declared eligible for the National Register by the Kentucky State Historic Preservation Officer in 1986. The West farm contains one main residence and eleven outbuildings which have a date range between the last quarter of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century. The house and three of the complex ancillary structures are over 50 years old. The remaining sheds and barns were constructed post 1945. However, the complex as a whole displays its historic integrity and is a significant part of the community fabric, and therefore, also the Woolcott Historic District.
