Daytrip: Greensburg, Hodgenville, Campbellsville, KY
COLUMBIAMAGAZINE.COM SUGGESTED DAYTRIP: Take KY 61 to Greensburg, KY, to see the wonderful changes in Larry Smith's hometown of Greensburg and the progress other communities in South Central Kentucky are making. Park you car and see the ongoing improvements in downtown Greensburg, KY.
See the Old Courthouse, walk the footbridge to see the old depot, and be sure to come back to the Square and see what the work done under the leadership of Greensburg Mayor Lisle Cheatham. Visit the shops, and take time to see the the newly renovated library, the work on the Green County Judicial Center, and be sure to see the parking lot behind the library, with a beautiful Trena Flinchem Corbin mural, great landscaping, and wonderful signage, it's as much a park as a parking lot.
Further up the road on KY 61, there's Buffalo and then Lincoln's birthplace near Hodgenville. The Hodgenville Lincoln Square offers another laboratory look at what communities can do to become more attractive. Visit the Lincoln Museum at 67 Lincoln Square.
Return to Columbia via KY 55 to see the Thomas Hiestand Home at Campbellsville .Stop in and say hello to Adair Countian Gaylon Yarberry at the Huddle House.
Take a drive through Campbellsville University. Park your car in a visitors area. Visit Ransdell Chapel. Walk the campus where great photographs can be taken from any aspect. Have a Starbucks coffee in the student center or a delightful meal in Winters Dining Hall.
Stroll downtown to Main Street and see the progress on the Merchants Hotel building, see Shoreline Communications Big Dawg radio station, the new Taylor County Judicial Center, and stop in and say hi to Bill Chandler, longtime proprietor of Chandler's, who says Main Street has never looked better.
On the way home to Columbia, consider ways Columbia and Adair County can benefit from the lessons to be learned from work these outstanding neighbors are doing.
