  • A bit of history

    Hodgenville is a town that thrives on history. The passion the people of Hodgenville have for their history and heritage is rare and refreshing. With so much history packed into a county like LaRue, it would be almost impossible to know all of the ins and outs.

    Robert Hodgen built Hodgen’s Mill in 1788. Hodgen’s Mill became the center of attraction in the small community seeing as there were no churches or post offices in the community at the time. As you may have guessed, Hodgenville was named after Hodgen’s Mill after his passing.

  • Herbs and Olive Oil

    On Wednesday, June 27, the LaRue County Public Library hosted a herb infused oil class for the community. Katy Marshall led the class, and works with the library frequently.

    “Olive oil paired with certain herbs can be used for skincare, but also the oil can be used for cooking, and the jars can even be used for just aesthetic purposes,” Marshall said.

    Marshed brought five dried herbs from her family’s garden to show to the class - lavender, thyme, oregano, sage, and rosemary.
