  • A signature industry

    Bourbon is booming, and this week we’ll see further evidence of that as Bardstown - the Bourbon Capital of the World - hosts the Kentucky Bourbon Festival. In 2016, 53,000 people from 44 states as well as the District of Columbia and 14 different countries attended the festival, and we are looking forward to an even more successful 2017 festival.

    As Kentucky’s signature spirit continues to build appeal across the globe, I can’t help thinking about how our region is blessed with the resources and the history that make bourbon so special to our communities.

  • Building on the PAST,Building for the FUTURE

    In 1919, twenty-eight local men and women came together investing $15,000 to charter a banking institution in the southern part of LaRue County. In its first location, this bank would open in a new 500 square foot building in the center of a town called Magnolia, Kentucky. This enterprising location was home to what was seen as a location of new prosperity, nestled alongside a post office, grocery store, flour mill, and a new high school. Bank of Magnolia opened for business September 29, 1919.
