Bybee Pottery is located in the small rural town of Bybee, among the hills of Madison County, Kentucky, on Highway 52 E. Bybee Pottery stands as a landmark of pioneer days. This old building (photo probably taken ca. 1960) has housed the equipment and business of Bybee Pottery for over a century. The family business has been turning out handmade pottery by the Cornelison family for five generations. The photo below shows Jim Cornelison when he was 12 years of age learning the trade under the hands of his father, Walter, while his grandfather Ernest looked on. Lee Ebner, 703 Orchard Hill Drive, Louisville, KY 40214; 502/366-5796, shares these photos. See the October 2007 issue of The Kentucky Explorer for an article that will make readers feel they have paid a visit to the oldest working pottery business west of the Alleghenies.
