Author: Meranda L. Caswell

The history of Hardin County is defined by such notable figure as John Hardin, the Revolutionary War colonel for whom the area is named, and Abraham Lincoln, who was born here in 1809.  Today tourist and residents can visit historic sites that commemorate these individuals and those lesser-known, such as John Y. Hill, who built the stately home that is now the Brown-Pusey House, a museum and library. In Images of America: Hardin County,vintage photographs depict the past of the county seat, Elizabethtown, and also that of the smaller towns of Colesburg, Glendale, Hardin Springs, and White Mills. The communities of Stithton and Grahamton are pictured as they were before being replaced by Fort Knox Bullion Depository and military post. Featuring images from the Brown-Pusey House and community, this volume takes readers down Dixie Highway to appreciate the historic towns and natural beauty of Hardin County
