Before Christmas, I visited The Hearty Artisan in Hardy, Kentucky. The Hearty Artisan features locally-crafted items of superior quality. Conveniently located on Highway 319 just outside of Williamson, WV, and situated in Hatfield-McCoy Feud country, the shop is a perfect destination for tourists seeking unique gift items.
On December 7, 2016, I visited the Betty McCoy House at Stringtown, Pike County, Kentucky. According to tradition, Roseanna McCoy gave birth to her child by Johnse Hatfield here at Aunt Betty’s residence in 1881. The romance between Johnse and Roseanna represents one of the more familiar events of the Hatfield-McCoy Feud. NOTE: The present-day house includes the original log structure. Until recent years, this home stood across the highway and faced the river.
