"Scott Co., KY: A History," p. 217--

"In January 1877 the Little Eagle correspondent to the Times wrote, 'It is the intention of some of the country merchants to build several business houses on the line of the railroad at or near Mr. S.T. Connellee's, with the expectation of having a depot established.' In February promoters Richard F. Pack and T. J. Burgess purchased about twenty-five acres from Connellee at one hundred dollars per acre with plans to donate four acres to the railroad company. 'It is at the crossing of the Big Eagle and Harrison County pike and the Railway. The town I suppose will be called Sadysville.' mused the correspondent. Cincinnati Sourthern Railroad officials countered promoters' aggressiveness by advising Pack that 'if he wanted a depot, he must build it, and then it was to be under the control of the Railroad Company.' By August 1877 Sadieville had a 'blacksmith and carpenter shop, one dry-goods store, two groceries, one hotel, and seven dwellinghouses,' and H. H. Squairs was developing the depot grounds and side-tracks. T. J. Burgess, Sadieville's major developer, bought 11.5 acres, 'a greater portion of the land suitable for building,' from Richard F. Pack. Kaly's Hotel offered music, dancing, and dining in addition to boarding space."
