Richmond Habitat homeowner recognized in President Carter feature


RICHMOND — Side bar:

A sign for ‘Hammerin’ Hills’

Five years after settling into her new home, Trammel thought it would be nice if a sign was erected to identify the block of Habitat homes off Irvine View and Douglas Court.

It was fitting that their miniature “subdivision” be called “Hammerin’ Hills” in honor of the 1997 “Hammering in the Hills” building project, she said.

A woodworker had agreed to create the sign for her, she said, but passed away before it was completed.

She would like for the sign to say: Hammerin’ Hills/Habitat for Humanity/Jimmy Carter Work Project/Richmond, Ky./Est. 1997.

Trammel said she hopes someone would be willing to donate the sign or give it to her for a good price.

“There is a lot of talent in Madison County who could help out with this,” she said. “This is something I would like to see done before I die.”

For details, contact Trammel at (859) 200-9431.
