This distance chart, which describes distances between taverns and stage stands along Boone's Lick Road, was published by a stagecoach line in the early 19th century. Thrailkeld's was an earlier name for Van Horn's Tavern.
Nine-year-old Fergene Goddin sits in the back of a wagon in front of Van Horn's Tavern in approximately 1914. Once the era of stagecoach travel had ended, Van Horn's became a private home for the Goddin family.

The Maguire Boulevard extension will allow for easier access between Stadium Boulevard, U.S. Highway 63 and the LeMone Industrial Plaza. The total amount the city paid for the project is $6.9 million.
About 30 city officials and council members gathered Monday afternoon for a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the intersection of Maguire and Stadium boulevards. The $6.9 million project is aimed at alleviating traffic flow at the intersection of New Haven Road and Highway 63.
Environmental impact was a concern during the construction of the bridges on Maguire Boulevard. In an effort to be more environmentally sensitive, Sixth Ward Councilwoman Barbara Hoppe said the bridge doesn't directly drain into the creek below. The extension increases access to many businesses, including a FedEx facility on the boulevard.
