Summary: Title: Book shows Dixie Highway history Author: William Croyle Publisher: Kentucky Enquirer Date: 5/31/09 Deborah Kohl Kremer spent the last year on what she called a "treasure hunt" for old photos of Dixie Highway. By the look of her new book, she amassed a fortune. Kremer is the author of "Northern Kentucky's Dixie Highway," part of the "Images of America" series by Arcadia Publishing. It will hit stores June 8. This is the first book for Kremer, a freelance writer and contributor to The Kentucky Enquirer. The book features 200 black-and-white photos of the roughly 15-mile stretch of the highway from Covington to Florence, with some dating to the 1800s. Kremer, who was raised in Villa Hills and has traveled the highway frequently, called everybody she knew who had any connection with the road. "I was in living rooms, basements, garages," Kremer said. "I looked through thousands of pictures." She scanned the photos on site and wrote the captions for them after interviewing the owners of the photos. "Everyone told me so many neat stories," Kremer said. The chapters of the book follow the road from Covington to Florence, with many of the photos requiring some imagination. For example, a 1904 photo shows a snow-covered stretch of the highway in Fort Mitchell with nothing but farmland on both sides. A few 1937 photos show the construction of the Southern Railroad underpass in Erlanger. There are also dramatic pictures of the Lookout House fire in Fort Wright 1973, and the congregation of Blessed Sacrament Church in Fort Mitchell laying the church's cornerstone in 1920. "My husband found those Blessed Sacrament photos at an antique store last year," said Ruth Korzenborn, who contributed several photos to the book with her husband, Kenton County Sheriff Chuck Korzenborn. "They were part of someone's personal family photo album - he knew how historical they were." Kremer said after she got the photos she needed, people were still calling her with many more to contribute. She said she may do a second volume on the same stretch of highway in the near future.

Synopsis: Northern Kentucky’s Dixie Highway is a slice of Americana pie. Known also as U.S. 25 and the Lexington-Covington Turnpike, the once-rural route connects the urban cores of Cincinnati, Covington, and Newport to Central Kentucky. Originally a buffalo trail and named in the early 1800s, the route became a paved national highway in the 1920s. The creation of the thoroughfare encouraged the growth of several communities along its route that still thrive today. Images of America: Northern Kentucky’s Dixie Highway captures historic images of the people and places along the Dixie Highway beginning in Covington and heading south through Boone County. The photographs—some taken as early as the mid-1800s—depict time’s influence as well as those things that remain the same. The 200 images inside offer readers a chance to revisit the friends, familiar sites, and memorable times enjoyed along Northern Kentucky’s Dixie Highway.
About the Author: Author Deborah Kohl Kremer is a Northern Kentucky native who has been traveling along the Dixie Highway for several decades. A freelance writer from Villa Hills, Kremer’s writing has been featured in Kentucky Monthly Magazine, the Cincinnati Enquirer, and other regional and national publications.
