Blowing A Horn For Peace

Kentucky Scene [Not Hoagland's Stable]

An excerpt from the History of Lexington, Kentucky...:

In the year 1812 and for some time after, the post office was located in a little red frame house which stood on the site of Hoagland's stable, on Main, between Limestone and Rose. Persons are still living who remember when the news came to Lexington that the war with England was over. The post-rider, with the mail bag strapped behind him, and furiously blowing his horn, dashed up to the post office door with the word "Peace" in big letters upon the front of his hat.
