Concierge Service At Elizabeth Kentucky Hotels

By David Mims

There can be a no greater area with such a historic past as Elizabeth, Kentucky. At one time being only a small community of three forts that were built to fend of Native Americans, it is now the County seat of Hardin. Laid out in a triangle as a defensive strategy, these were the only inhabitants anywhere between the Ohio River and the Green River. As the forts offered more and more protection, more settlers arrived in the area. Settle in at Elizabeth Kentucky Hotels and let your explorations begin.

Abraham Lincoln was reared in Elizabeth by Thomas Lincoln and his second wife, Sarah Bush Johnston. Abraham Lincoln’s mother, Nancy Hanks, passed away while the future president was but a toddler. The year of 1854 saw the building of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad. A village of prosperity, Elizabeth became a frequent stopping point during the Civil War due mostly in part to the railroad.

Confederate and Union blood sullied the soil in and around Elizabethtown. Confederate General John Hunt Morgan used a local cemetery in his bid to stave off the advancement of Union troops. General George Custer, along with his wife, was sent to Elizabethtown after the Civil War. It was his duty to stop the acts of the Carpetbaggers and the Ku Klux Klan and erase the illegal distilleries from the area. He and his Seventh Cavalry and Fourth Infantry had much work to do in this regard. The home occupied by he and his wife is still standing today.
