From interviewing an astronaut for my Roanoke, Virginia, middle school’s newspaper in the 1970s to the work I do today at Wells Fargo, I enjoy creating “aha” moments for readers that tell them something they didn’t know. As the bank that helped link East and West and whose lineage includes a role in the birth of the American stock market, Wells Fargo is a treasure trove of untold stories.

On the N.E. corner of the Fayette County Courthouse lawn stood the whipping post established in 1847 to punish slaves for such offenses as being on the streets after 7 p.m. Fayette Co. was one of the largest slaveholding counties in Kentucky.
