One more comment, concerning one of the other reviews here. Stop, Kentucky, was not so named because the road stops there. The road most certainly does not. I know this because my family is from just east of there. The name was chosen because the postmaster at Mt. Union was given limited choices of the names he could choose for the local post office in the early 20th century. This is how, for example, Rector's Flat, to the east of Stop, got a post office name Murl, where one of my grandparents was the postmaster.
