Central City

KENTUCKY

 

Welcome

 
 

    Central City lies in western Kentucky, in rolling landscape in the middle of the coalfields of Muhlenberg County, between the Green River and Pond rivers at the crossroads of highways U.S. 431 and 62. Yet Central City also resides centrally in the minds of not only those thousands who live there now, and in the memories of curious visitors who come for special events throughout the year, but also in the thoughts of those who grew up in that singular place and remember it as a field of care. Central City occupies a special place on earth and in the mind.


    The facts are these; founded in 1873, it now contains approximately 5,200 citizens; it nourishes what is still the second-most winning high-school basketball program in the nation; it sponsored for 15 years the Everly Brothers Music Festival. It is the largest town in the home territory of John Prine, Merle Travis, and the Everly Brothers. The Music Museum attests to the story: the Muhlenberg Sound that sprang out of the mines, soil, and people.


    The town itself exhibits a profoundly proactive narrative: an industrious community of hope and pride. You will see it in myriad ways: this web site, in the Muhlenberg County Music Museum, in the revitalized and walkable downtown (after the big-box stores nearly depleted it of businesses and patrons, as has happened in many places in America). But most of all you can sense it in the spirit and attitude of civic achievement. Central City is alive in a field of care.
