I completely missed it.
Last week, as I was doing a little research on the history of Hodgenville (remember, three years until the bicentennial), I came across a clipping of an event that occurred 100 years ago.
A fire destroyed much of downtown Hodgenville on April 28, 1914. Twenty-six businesses in the northwest quadrant of Lincoln Square turned to ashes that night. The event put a damper on the City’s 100th year celebration.
Most of the businesses that were rebuilt can be seen on the square today.
