This Sunday will be a historic day for the city of Frankfort.  Around one o’clock in the afternoon the Capital Plaza Tower will be reduced to rubble.  Dr. Doug Boyd, the director of the Nunn Center for Oral Histories in the UK Libraries has a personal interest in the event because he wrote about the community and people who were displaced to make room for the tower's construction in the 1960's.  Boyd, whom you might know from our ongoing series Saving Stories, is the author of Crawfish Bottom, Recovering a Lost Kentucky Community.
