My Old Kentucky Home Tobacco Barn Candle
If you haven’t visited the My Old Kentucky Home State Park recently, here’s a friendly reminder to do so asap. The park is a one-of-a-kind experience that’s just perfect in every way.
My Old Kentucky Home has a little extra incentive for you to pay them a visit soon – candles! If you love candles even half as much as I do (I have at least one flickering during all waking hours), you’re going to have to check out their fun line of Kentucky accented candles. These candles include a “Tobacco Barn Candle” that has apparently become really popular.
The candle, made by Kentucky Green Studio in Paris, Kentucky, has the scent of tobacco curing in a barn and is sold at the park’s gift shop. Other candles, which are also related to the history of the park, include: Doo-Dah!, Mint Julep, Bacon, Meadow in the Bloom, Muscadine Wine, Blackberry Wine, and Hard Times.
The candles (which would make wonderful Christmas gifts) each cost $16. Call the park at 502-348-3502 for orders and information.
My Old Kentucky Home State Park includes the historic mansion called Federal Hill. Construction of Federal Hill was started by John Rowan in 1795 and was completed in 1818. The historic home is the subject of Stephen Foster’s song, “My Old Kentucky Home,” which is also the Kentucky state song. The park also has an 18-hole golf course, campground, picnic area and a summertime theatrical production – “The Stephen Foster Story.”

I live in Ridgetop, Tn not far from the Franklin, Ky State Line on
I-65 and also live near Adairville, Ky and was wondering where is the nearest location I can buy the “My Old Ky Home Tobacco Barn” candles? My daughter once lived in Franklin and Bowling Green and now lives in Reno, NV and would love to have one of your candles as a reminder of home. We also use to live on my sister’s farm in Adairville and had a tobacco barn smoking in our back yard. Thank You in advance for your response.

I have looked into this (high and low!) and here’s what I have found: You can visit the My Old Kentucky Home Mercantile online and/or you could find My Old Kentucky Home on Facebook and, directly, ask them if there is anyplace close to you that sells these wonderful candles. Good luck!
