Scenic, Historic Green Co., KY: named for Gen. Nathaniel Greene

2013-05-01 - Downtown Greensburg, Kentucky - Photo by Larry Smith, The WAVE, FM 92.7 radio. This Historical Marker on the Square in Greensburg details how the county was formed, and the gives a brief biographical sketch of the man for whom it was named. At this time of the year, it's easy to think that it was for the color of the heavily forested land and the thousands of acres of green pastures - maybe that's why the "e" was dropped - and that's fitting. As a historian, I think it's good to frequently remind ourselves of the heroes, like Gen. Greene, who helped make life in towns like my hometown, Greensburg, Green County, KY, possible. The view here is looking south, down Main Street, the road leading to Columbia and Clay Ridge, via the Dakota Meyer Highway, or Edmonton and Sulphur Well, via KY 70/US 68. - Larry Smith, The WAVE, FM 92.7.
