Custer Lives!

Elizabethtown Kentucky

If you are looking for a vacation that has tons of history, warm and friendly people, lots to do, and won't cost you an arm and a leg then Elizabethtown is the place for you. I enjoyed my stay there so much I went back a second time. I first visited in July 2009 and made my return trip about a month later in August.

Elizabethtown was first settled by Whites in about 1779. Colonel Andrew Hynes originally dubbed it Elizabeth Town after his wife in 1797 when lots and streets began to be laid out as more settlers poured into the area to be near the three forts that stood nearby. More recently, it was the setting for Cameron Crowe's motion picture "Elizabethtown" featuring Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst.

By staying in this historic gem of a town you'll be within thirty minutes of such attractions as Fort Knox and the Patton Museum, President Lincoln's birthplace, Lincoln Museum, Lincoln Heritage House, Swoope's Auto Museum, Schmidt's Coca-Cola Museum, Brown-Pusey House, Hardin County Museum, Kentucky Railroad Museum, Glendale Historic District, numerous distilleries, Emma Reno Black History Gallery, at least four parks, and so much more. Elizabethtown is centrally located to all of the attractions.
