Welcome to the George W. Ryan Home!
In 1916 George W. Ryan and his wife, Mary Lee, built their family home in a Neoclassical style. Mr. Ryan was employed by the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mills. He and Mrs. Ryan raised their two children in the home, George W. Ryan, Jr. and Katherine Ryan. In 1955, shortly after Mr. Ryan’s death, Mary sold the home to Coleman and Clara Taylor.
Mr. Taylor, a prominent attorney, attended Bethel College located in Russellville, Kentucky. He began his law practice in Kentucky in 1915, and in 1917 he was elected county attorney. In the 1930’s Attorney Taylor began practicing law in Amsterdam, New York. In 1960, he and Mrs. Taylor sold their Russellville home to Dr. J.C. and Mrs. Roberta Luckett.
Dr. Luckett, a World War II veteran and a veterinarian with Logan County Animal Clinic, was drawn to the house due, in part, to its impressive construction with stone foundation walls and steel I beams. In 1995 Mrs. Roberta Luckett passed away.
In time, Dr. Luckett married Mrs. Donna Bown Hiatt. They continued to love the home and enjoy its many attributes, including its long standing family tradition.
In 2006, Dr. Luckett passed away. Mrs. Donna Luckett continues to enjoy the home, and its many stories within.
