Set for some scenes in the movie Stripes with Bill Murray

The day that I visited the Bernheim Forest I also visited the Jim Beam Distillery.

There has been much renovation done but I knew of a place I wanted to find that I had known about long ago.






This building always reminds me of some computer logo.


The original Beam residence.











This green building was used in the movie
"Stripes"  with Bill Murray.
It was used as the prison.
Years ago before updating this was a very spooky place.
A lot of the scenes for this movie were shot at
Fort Knox Ky. about 30 miles from here.

The road past this place has been rerouted but when I was working as a visiting nurse I saw many patients down the original road right through the middle of the distillery property to a small community named
Clermont.
It is still called Clermont and has it's own post office.

 and church

 Most folks in this community work at Jim Beam Distillery.

"Owe my soul to the company store."
from Tennessee Ernie Ford song.



This church is down near the river and I have seen many a baptism going on.

 Some lovely old homes along this road.
Steady work at the distillery and good wages.


Anyone else out there like to go looking for old buildings and places stuffed back in the memory file of your mind?

What a lovely post...Was thinking about resurrecting Adventure Tour Express. Maybe I'll just do that later today! Please stop by! Cathy!

So, you poked some of the 'stuffing' in my mind. For several days of filming I was an extra. Learned a lot !

Thank you for the kind words about my son's button placket shorts :)

That's cool about the Jim Beam plant! We vacationed down in TN a couple years ago and toured the Jack Daniels distillery. That was a good tour!

My grandma lived in KY until she died-- in Burnside. Not sure if that's close to you or not.

Have a great week!
