Disputanta Post Office

Disputanta, KY is a spooky little place in the mountains of Rockcastle County. Aside from its rural residents, there isn't much left here except a church, a graveyard or two, and this lovely old abandoned post office.

There is an old legend that Satan comes to visit Disputanta every Autumn, and novelist Johnny Payne used this legend as the basis for his play "The Devil In Disputanta".

Payne's Grocery - My family ran this general store and post office for a number of years. It was the only place to get groceries and gas in the 1960-70s. I'm not sure when it was built or first started but I have seen accounts that it was started in early 1900s by my great grandfather Olmstead Payne.
