Happy Flag Day!

To celebrate Flag Day, I wanted to show off my American Flag.

My house was built in the 1790’s and is one of the first in Kentucky.  I wanted a flag that was flown when the house was built.  The 15 star flag was used from 1795-1818,  when Kentucky and Vermont joined the US.  It is the only US flag to also have 15 stripes.  It is nicknamed “The Star Spangled Banner” , because it is the flag that Francis Scott Key wrote our National Anthem about.

So next time you drive down Old Main Street in Old Washington, slow down and take a closer look at the flag hanging at my house.  It’s a piece of history!
