by Deborah Catchings :
"I am thinking that there was
at least two sets of Humfleets.
One set was in the London [KY] area
and the other in the Barbourville [KY] area.
Whether they are related or not is a
question that will probably conjure up
a story of a family feud."
by Glenn Perry:
"The place where the Humfleets settled
was on the county line dividing Knox
[Barbourville, KY] and Laurel [London, KY]
Counties (or rather the line was drawn about
15 years after they settled there).
Their home (and the Mt. Olivet Church) wound
up just barely within Knox County, but part
of the land was on the Laurel County side.
Some of the later generations lived on
either side. That explains why there are
both Barbourville and London Humfleets.
It is not that they are two different families."

Southern Living Magazine will feature Vintage House
~By Crystal Edwards
Vintage is a word synonymous for good dining.

The Vintage House,
located on the corner of North Main Street and Courthouse Square,
has long been the premier restaurant for sit-down dining. With the
collection of old photographs and antiques that decorate the oldest
building on the square serving as a backdrop, the Vintage House has
been host to almost every special occasion known to man. Soon, the
Vintage House will no longer be Barbourville's best kept secret.
The magazine "Southern Living" has chosen to profile
Doug and Sharon Warriner's establishment
in the near future. In doing so not only will the restaurant get national
exposure, but so will the town of Barbourville. According to Warriner,
the publishers at "Southern Living" would have never heard about the
Vintage House if not for a certain Republican icon. "The Hal Rogers
Tourism Initiative has really tried to promote his district for the
historical value it has," Warriner said. "He has hired a firm specializing
in public relations to better live up to the slogan -'get ready company
is coming,'" Warriner added. George Percy, a representative from Geiger
and Associates, the public relations firm handpicked by Rogers,
accompanied Wanda Butler, writer for "Southern Living," to the Vintage
House on June 7. Their goal was to find out what the fuss was about. It
didn't take them long to find their answer. "This is the best food
and hospitality I've ever had in Kentucky," Percy said. While Warriner
believes the food is the main attraction to his business, he knows the
ageless decor adds a little something extra his customers can appreciate.
"We try to maintain a certain ambiance here by taking this old building
and decorating it with a creative twist," he said. "We have quite a
collection of old photographs and other pieces of history so when people
come here to eat, they can appreciate the traditions of the area too."
As for the food, Warriner describes his masterpieces as "southern with a
twist." With meals Buttermilk Pecan Crusted Chicken, the Cowboy Ribeye
Steak, House Smoked Salmon or Trout, and Fried Green Tomatoes among
the most popular, it's evident this is a place worth checking out. The
Vintage House is open for lunch on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for
lunch and Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for dinner. They also cater
events and are currently serving eight separate counties. Warriner said
his menu changes frequently, but his goal never waivers. "While we love
hosting people from all areas, we love to entertain people in this
community," he said. "I think everyone around here has the same goal, to
work toward improving our city as much as possible," he added. Warriner
said he gets his ideas for recipes from several different cultures. He has
had culinary training in Spain and France. A publication date for the Vintage
House article in "Southern Living" was not available at press time.
However, when it's released, it will available.
