The Outlook travels to the Bahia Palace in Moracco Print E-mail

The Falmouth Outlook traveled with Frances Newman (left) and Ginger Newman (right) to Spain, Portugal, and Morocco in May/June. While visiting Morocco, the mother/daughter duo stopped to pose for a picture with the newspaper at the Bahia Palace in Marrakech. Built in the late 19th century, it was intended to be the greatest palace of its time. The name means “brilliance.” As in other buildings of the period, it was intended to capture the essence of the Islamic and Moroccan style.


PC Historical Society needs information on local veterans Print E-mail

The Pendleton County Historical and Genealogical Society has an upcoming project and needs the help of local residents. They are planning to publish a book to honor Pendleton County veterans. In order for them to do this they need a picture of the veteran and a brief biography. The biography should include full name, parents' names, spouse, and children. If preferred, any living spouse or children would not be included. One should also include which branch of service, rank, where they served, and war if applicable. If the veteran is from a much earlier time or no picture is available, just the biography is good since they want to include them.

The Pendleton County Historical Society knows these photos are precious to families and therefore will do a scan of the pictures if necessary. The Fryer House in Butler is open the first and third Tuesday of each month as well as the third Saturday of the month for regular meetings. Plans can be made to do scans on these dates. If you are unable to make any of these dates, contact: and someone will reply to set up a date for those who are interested. You can also send your veteran’s picture and biography to this email address or mail it to: Pendleton County Historical and Genealogical Society, PO Box 130, Falmouth, KY 41040. Attention: Suzan Taylor.
