A Man Following in the Footsteps of His Ancestors...

Jerry Bransford is beginning to become a local celebrity in Central Kentucky.  At 70 years old  Jerry currently resides in Glendale, Ky which is about 40 miles from Mammoth Cave.  He has been featured in Articles in the New York Times and local newspapers such as the Glasgow Daily Times as well as multiple in person interviews and documentaries that can be found on YouTube.  Jerry remembered stories his father once shared with him as a child about the legacy of his family.  This would later inspire Jerry to become a 5th generation Bransford cave guide.  In retirement, he guides tours in the same cave his ancestors once walked.  Now he seeks to create a memorial to remember his family and preserve the history of the cave guides at Mammoth Cave.
