Historyedit

White burley tobacco monument dedicated on August 7, 1964 and located at the Ohio Tobacco Museum in Ripley

Among the early settlers to Brown County was Jesse Root Grant, father of Ulysses S Grant, who built a home and set up a tannery in Georgetown where Ulysses grew up5

Brown County was said to be the place of origin of the White Burley type of tobacco, grown in 1864 by George Webb and Joseph Fore on the farm of Captain Frederick Kautz near Higginsport from seed from Bracken County, Kentucky He noticed it yielded a different type of light leaf shaded from white to yellow, and cured differently By 1866, he harvested 20,000 pounds of Burley tobacco and sold it in 1867 at the St Louis Fair for $58 per hundred pounds By 1883, the principal market for this tobacco was Cincinnati, but it was grown throughout central Kentucky and Middle Tennessee6 Later the type became referred to as burley tobacco, and it was air-cured
