Local Chapter Alpha Delta hosts program to highlight historical significance of Brandenburg



 Thirteen active members of Alpha Delta met at the historical Allen/Miller house across from the high school on Jan. 28 to hear Local Historian Cindy Brown Henning tell of the history of Buttermilk Falls. The presentation not only told of all the successful businesses along the Buttermilk Falls Road, which included apple brandy, highly prized lithograph stones and many other products which were shipped down the river on flatboats. She pointed out that for a while it was even in competition with Louisville for successful industry because in Louisville they had to contend with the falls. The members were astounded by the presentation, which included early maps and pictures of Brandenburg. Thanks to the History Committee for persuading Cindy to share her vast knowledge. We are so thankful to have people like Cindy who recognize the significance of our local history.
