Uncle Tom's Cabin marker.

Marker: Uncle Tom's Cabin Site

Field review by the editors.

Paint Lick, Kentucky

A banged-up old historical marker explains that the plantation mansion of Uncle Tom's master, which was torn down in 1926, was a mile down the road. "Legendary cabin of Uncle Tom was behind the mansion." The marker also notes that the book Uncle Tom's Cabin, which condemned slavery, produced "deep resentment in the South." The cabin is long gone, and only the marker remains.

I-75 exit 76. Drive west on Hwy 21/Paint Lick Rd for 2.5 miles. Turn left onto Hwy 954. Drive 7.5 miles. At the stop sign, turn left onto Hwy 52. Drive a quarter-mile. The marker will be on the left, at the corner of Hwy 52 and Walker Pike (Look for a white sign on a fence for a Baptist Church). Only the side of the marker facing this way refers to Uncle Tom's Cabin.
