While on the way home from Puducah and the Quilt Museum, we stopped to eat dinner at Patti's 1890's Settlement. It had come highly recommended by a friend of Amber's.
We found it in Grand Rivers, KY. It was about 10 miles outside of Puducah.
The food was wonderful and way too much of it. We had the cutest waiter who flirted with Amber and gave her directions and drew a picture on a napkin of how to make moonshine. It seems that Grand Pond near there was the big moonshine production area during proabition. He even told us that Al Capone made his there...not sure how true, but made for a fun conversation.
There were many small dining rooms and each was decorated with different colors. Lots of twinkle lights, plants, flowers and....yes, quilts. The ones I'll show you were all hanging from the ceiling or arranged high on a wall.
After dinner and before starting the long ride home, we all needed to use the "Restroom"
Well, that's what it said on the door...
As we left, we walked across this little bridge where a creek ran,
and watched the water wheel.
There were lots of little trails full of plants and flowers, winding creeks, waterfalls, and other buildings. There was a coffee place and a bakery, a sandwich shop, and another restaurant. We concluded that was why it was called a settlement. But you sure would not know what was back there from the street. We found a treasure in Patti's.
