IMG 6497MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (9/18/18) — A quitclaim deed conveying a portion of the old Graham School loop from Muhlenberg County to Bard Farms of Powderly will be “reversed”, according to Muhlenberg County Attorney Darris Russell.

“The road will not be closed,” Russell said, "if that's what you need to hear."

Russell said residents along the road can be assured the deed is going to be reversed.

SurfKY News obtained a copy of the quitclaim deed from an interested party in Graham concerning the road which travels from Kentucky 175 leading up to the former elementary center, high school and gymnasium.

The deed, signed on behalf of the county by Muhlenberg Judge-Executive Rick Newman and County Clerk Gaylan Spurlin to Thomas Glenn Bard and Kimberly Carter Bard, was drafted by Greenville attorney Brent Yonts and signed in June by Newman and Spurlin. The Bards signatures were notarized Aug. 27.

“The closed part only should have been conveyed,” said Russell. “It’s been a big misunderstanding.”

Russell said the “misunderstanding” will be reversed and the road will be deeded back to the county and recorded in the county’s deed book.

The quitclaim deed, recorded in deed book D590, conveyed that portion of the road to the Bards for the consideration of $1.

The last class to graduate from Graham High School was in 1990 and the elementary school was merged into Longest Elementary in 2004.

Bard Farms purchased the old Graham School building and announced plans to develop a distillery there. To learn more about the distillery and its rennovation go to: https://www.facebook.com/TBD2018/ and HERE.
