Ben Wilson took in Sidewalk Days in downtown Lawrenceburg in September 1968. He was well known around the area as the man who walked everywhere and didn’t wear shoes. He was also well known as a man who knew horses. He was always welcome to the county fair and was allowed to stay in one of the tack rooms at the state fair on occasion. Many children thought he was Santa Claus and even though he died in 1969, any one of a certain age remembers him well. Many remember their parents picking him on the road in his bare feet in the dead of winter as he was on his way to someplace.
