Our Location

Description

Country : Lincoln County is one of the original three counties of Kentucky. Founded in 1780. The town of Crab Orchard was founded in 1788.

Crab Orchard was near the end of the Logan Trace of the Wilderness Road and was an early pioneer station. There are several mineral springs in the area and from 1827 until 1922 taverns and hotels were located at Crab Orchard Springs. The post office was established in 1815, with Archibald Shanks its first postmaster. Crab Orchard was the birthplace of Thomas L. Smith, also known as "Pegleg" Smith. My station is located just outside the city limits, in 2012 the population was 832. Might be less than that now. If you watch the camera you might catch an Amish buggy going up Hwy. 39N. The town is located about 45 miles South of Lexington, Ky.

I am a Veteran of the U.S. Navy/Army National Guard and I own and operate this web sight on my own. I enjoy giving something back to my community because it has given so much to me.
