Falmouth, Kentucky

“Bird’s eye view of the Falmouth Fair Grounds, the place where everybody has a good time – young,
old, and indifferent.  The half-mile track, which is the best in the state, is in good condition, and will
be the scene of some good racing today and tomorrow.” Falmouth Outlook, September 27, 1907
