The purpose of the Heritage Harvest Driving Tour is to display, depict or re-create our 18th, 19th, and early 20th century rural Appalachian traditions and heritage through:
* Agricultural methods/machinery/products * Architecture * Methods used in daily life preparation of food, cloth, and household items * Arts, crafts, music and recreational activities * Animals and their uses
Emphasis in all of the above is RURAL. We want to establish and maintain a standard that will rank our tour as a “must see and do” for immersion in “down in the country” years ago.
Tour stops must be located on the rural route in southern Boyd and northern Boyd Counties which will include Rt 3 and Rt 23 from Interstate 64 to Louisa including short drives on directly intersecting byways. This route will create a large scenic circle with no particular beginning or end for tour drivers. They can begin or end at Rt 3 near the Marathon Plant or the intersection of Rt 3 and 23 on the outskirts of Louisa.
