1. James Bacon Home Marker
Inscription.  The Bacon Family were early settlers of Barren Creek Springs in the late 1700s. By the later 1800s descendant James Bacon had become a successful businessman and family man. The family's status was visible in James' new home seen here, as the brothers, with wives and young children pose for this picture, taken in 1897 and printed on a calendar. Also featured is the impressive brick sidewalk in front of and leading to the home. The brick sidewalk once stretched all along the Main Street, broken in spots only by arching trees on each side. Today, the only stretch remaining of the original brick walk is the one in front of James Bacon's home, now owned and trasured by Randy and Rosemary Slacum.
