After an appointment in downtown Frankfort, I decided to knockout a really quick HP, so here we are.

Once you find your way back onto Wilkinson Boulevard (U.S. 127/421/60) going around Frankfort, proceed on US 421 North about 2 miles, and then turn left onto KY 1570. The previous directions will pretty much do for this HP but it's about 2 miles down this road to the house in question -- just follow the sign for St. John's Baptist Church and backtrack from there.

No one was home when I visited, so I did a quick walk into the yard to satisfy myself, got back into my car, and drove away. You can also get a fairly good view of distant ridges to the south from here.

As for the 90-degree blind turn in the road, I almost got into a paint-mixing contest with an old Ford pickup going through this turn.
