  • Stacey honored for lifetime achievement

    A lot has changed in 40 years.

    When Reb Stacey first purchased more than 700 acres of forestland in Grant County it was overgrown and did not look like much.

    It simply was a lot of land for the money.

    But, Stacey and his family have been dedicated ever since to restoring the land that rests about 10 miles outside of Dry Ridge.

    Now, filled with more than 20 miles of trails, an incomparable scenic view and an array of wildlife, the acreage has been transformed into the Reb Stacey Woodland and Wildlife Center.
