Owen Historical Society News: Court day was the forerunner of Sweet Owen Day

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

Dust whirled about as buggies and farm wagons made their way along Owenton streets in the early 1900s. The occasion was County Court Day and the enthused Owen County crowd bought, bartered, and bargained for the best deals of the day.
Most looked forward to this event which was held on the fourth Monday of the month. Many who attended were farmers who came to town, transacted their business  and returned home in time to milk.
