Yellow Rose Saloon

The saloon is home to a Jesse French 1875 player piano. When the player was originally purchased on July 23, 2018, it was foot propelled. After being refurbished by Mr. Jim Behr of Mayfield, it is now equipped with an electrical mechanism in order to play the beautiful sounds from the perforated paper. It is on loan from Hugh & Jill Kirby.

The saloon also features a beautiful stone fireplace where one may warm up to on a cold evening. The fireplace was built by Jeff & James Scarbrough. The golden yellow stage curtains were donated by the Perry family of Palmersville, TN. They had previously hung in old Palmersville High School from which we removed them on January 17, 2017.

The mounted wildlife was donated in memory of Eddie Barlow by his wife, Sandy Barlow. Eddie was an avid hunter of all types of wildlife. A couple of the wildlife mounts are on loan from John Dale Tidwell from hunting trips he has taken.

The saloon was began on April 2016 and finished October of 2018. The frame up and roof of the saloon was built by the Mayfield Graves County Vocational Carpentry Class as a hands-on learning experience for the students with electrical work done by the Vocational Electrical Class.

The Yellow Rose Saloon of Cartwright Grove was sponsored by anonymous donors from an estate that was left in part to help support projects to better our community. The saloon was named "The Yellow Rose" in reference to it being her favorite flower.

The saloon is available for rent for special events. It seats 65-70 people with the tables provided in the building.
