|There was no distillery in Richwood, Ky. These items are about the Richwood/Snyder/Susquehanna Distillery near Milton. All the names refer to the same place.|
|The Courier-Journal noted (April 25, 1909) that if prohibition should happen, Susquehanna Distillery would close, eliminating 85 jobs, and an annual payroll of $39,500. They would not buy 204,000 bushels of grain from farmers, and not pay $8,117 in state and local tax revenue. And they would close a building that cost $333,000, a huge sum in 1909.|
|“Fire destroyed 1500 barrels of whiskey at Milton, Ky., Sunday”from Marion, Kentucky's Crittenden Press, October 2, 1890||“James Levy & Co., former owners of the distillery now operated by James H Rogers, are in trouble with the government. An investigation of their warehouses at Milton, Ky., shows that a large quantity of their whiskey has mysteriously disappeared. Their plea is that someone has been robbing them. The shortage foots up $12,000, and they have paid the government that amount.” from Maysville's Daily Evening Bulletin, August 2, 1887|
|In 1917, the Susquehanna Distillery, officially owned by the Susquemac Distillery Co, employed 22 men and 15 women. Susquemac gave a tour of the plant to the Liquor Dealers Conventi0on in 1910 in Cincinnati. The tour included their warehouses which held 100,000 barrels. Read all about it here.|

The building was damaged to the amount of 4 or $5,000.” from Vevay's Indiana Reveille, March 3, 1858|
|Madison complains about the smell from the Richwood Distillery, not from the liquor, but the 900 cattle that ate the used grain from the distilling process, here.||“Milton, Ky., May 3. - A long-standing feud between Capt. W. H. Taylor, United States storekeeper, and Mr. M. W. Hagan, United States guager, resulting in a cutting affray late Monday afternoon at the Richwood distillery here, which may prove fatal to Capt. Taylor.” from Maysville's Evening Bulletin, May 3, 1904|
