Annie Fellows Johnston

A celebrated author of children's fiction, she was best known for her "Little Colonel" novels. While visiting relatives in Pewee Valley, she met five-year-old Hattie Cochran and her grandfather, Col. Geo. Weissinger, the inspirations for the characters in the novels. The fictitious Lloydsborough Valley was based on Pewee Valley.

An Indiana native, she wrote more than forty books, and most of the characters were based on people she knew. In 1910 she moved to Pewee Valley and bought "The Beeches." She lived there with her step-daughter, artist Mary G. Johnston, for the rest of her life. "The Little Colonel" movie starring Shirley Temple was made in 1935.
