Don’t Forget! You will be closer to the OKHT action by staying right here in Oldham County!

Kentuckians share a rich cultural history that doesn’t confine itself to just one community. Eyes moisten all over the state when we hear that sad old refrain from the classic Stephen Foster ballad – My Old Kentucky Home!
