Inscription.  E. H. Taylor, Jr., important figure in distilling industry, established the O.F.C. Distillery in 1869-70. Purchased by Geo. Stagg in 1878 and, in 1904, renamed George T. Stagg Distillery. During prohibition, one of few distilleries in the U.S. granted federal permit to bottle medicinal whiskey, allowing it to remain open. Albert Blanton became president in 1921.

Purchased by Schenley Distillers Corp. in 1929, it was greatly expanded and modernized in the 1930s. Sold again in 1992, it was renamed Buffalo Trace Distillery in 1999. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2013 as an exceptional distillery complex that contains a unique collection of historic buildings and structures.
