    Founded in 1860 as an cemetery, then orphanage, community grocery store, bank, cafe, and bourbon bar, surviving fires and worse: Prohibition. Named after the Calumet Farm thoroughbred and 1941 Triple Crown winner, Whirlaway / Mr. Longtail, was the only horse to ever win the unoffcial 'Fourth Leg' of the Triple Crown the Travers Stakes. A leading 'celebrity' of the day he raised money for WWII war bonds and emblazoned Allied Liberator bombers. Over 150 years after inception, the LongTail Building was restored by Narwhal Ventures, featuring an American Institute of Architects | KY Merit Award-winning architect, local construction and carpentry, a Kentucky College of Art & Design grad and nationally renowned Ghost Sign specialists. Historic signs on the building’s exterior were preserved and restored by hand from archival photos, commemorating the history of the community and space.
