Parking IN VUE
Our visitors have been asking for convenient, free parking and it's finally a reality! We're excited to reveal our brand new public parking lot on Taylor Avenue. Simply turn at the Fifth Third Bank from Fairfield Avenue heading toward the river and it's on the left. Perfect for the parallel parking impaired! Check it out tonight!
This longtime goal became a reality with assistance from the State of Kentucky, Desmond Insurance, Dobbling, Muehlenkamp-Erschell Funeral Home, and the City of Bellevue.

ShurWood Forest Custom Creations is Frame & Hang Studio's Featured Artist for February
When Mike Shuron was a child, he watched his grandfather build things in his shop, sometimes borrowing tools from his grandfather for small projects. Mike's love for woodworking grew over time. Eventually, he created his own shop in his Syracuse, New York basement where he started to make furniture for his family. This evolved into making custom furniture for those wanting something unique or to fit into a particular space. Mike won an award for one of his cabinets at the Northeastern Woodworkers Show in Saratoga Springs, New York. As time went on, he developed a desire to make wooden toys winning 1st place in the Senior Division of the New York State Fair and Best in Show for his wooden toys. Since moving to Kentucky, Mike is enjoying exhibiting at craft shows.
Some of his toys are for small boys and girls. Some are collectable toys for big boys and girls. Mike enjoys woodworking particularly watching the joy when people view the toys he created. Mike's toys can be seen on Facebook at Facebook.com/ShurWood Forest. He also will create a custom design just for you.
