There is an exciting project coming to Millersburg.  Lexington based muralist/artist Pierce Birdsong will be creating a mural of Martial Arts Master Jim Kelly in the spring of 2025.  Mr. Kelly was born in Millersburg in 1946 and graduated Bourbon County High School and also attended the University of Louisville.  He excelled in athletics, but it was his talent and training in martial arts that made him a movie star.  He appeared in many films, including Enter the Dragon, Blackbelt Jones and Three the Hard Way.  He was a credit to his craft and an inspiration by helping break down racial barriers.  There is a Go Fund Me page started for this project.  Please help honor this legacy of this good man and grant him the recognition he deserves and donate.  Even a small pebble makes ripples.
