►Cartwright Grove

Cartwright Grove is the recreation of a tiny town that has become a part of Mayfield and Graves County history, lovingly known by locals as Cartwright Farm, which was a gift to the community from the late Earl and Lucille Wright. Those buildings are long gone and only preserved in a few photographs, as well as the memories of the thousands of visitors that it attracted each year. A community effort has arisen to build a similar 1800's western town, located at Mayfield-Graves County Fairgrounds. The project has stirred the interest of many local residents, and is being constructed by a dedicated group of volunteers who want to make even more memories for future generations.

►Fancy Farm Picnic

In the Mayfield Monitor of July 31, 1880, there appeared the following notice: "There will be a barn dance, picnic and 'gander pulling' at Fancy Farm next Thursday. Those that have never seen the latter should turn out on this occasion. It will be interesting."
