Graysville, Todd County, Kentucky

In about 1833 Maj. Gray began running stage lines through the county. At the crossing of Elkton and Clarksville road with the Gallatin road, he put up a large hotel, and stables for the accommodation of guests, as some six lines all centered there. To this point he gave the name of Graysville. Besides the inn there were two or three stores there. John Brown and Thomas Allison both kept stores there, as well as James Brown, Ross Perkins and James Brenan. The stage lines only kept up a few years and then ceased running, and from that time the hamlet ran down. At present the hotel is occupied by several families of Negroes, the rest of the buildings have gone to rack and ruin, and one blacksmith shop is all that reminds one of the old town.
