Named in honor of the Prohibition-era master still-maker Casey Jones, the Casey Jones Distillery continues a family tradition. Arlon Casey Jones is the grandson of the legendary Casey and has faithfully copied the brilliant copper stills made by his grandfather to build his own moonshine and bourbon distillery right in the heart of The Land between the Lakes. Today visitors are invited to visit the distillery for a tour and/or a tasting and to spend some time enjoying a stroll through their 73-acre country property. There is a lounge area where guests can enjoy a drink and a shop where you can buy some gifts to take back home with you. The distillery produces straight KY Bourbon, small-batch Bourbon and Moonshine.

Described as an act of genocide by many sources, the Trail of Tears was the forced removal and relocation of Native Americans from the south east of America to the Indian Territory in Oklahoma. Many thousands died along the route. The Trail of Tears Park was established to honor the memory of these Native Americans who suffered remarkable hardships along the trail. Visitors to the park can join a guided tour of the Heritage Center (from March to October) and join the annual Pow Wow in September, a deeply moving educational experience which demonstrates Native American Indian culture through music, drumming, dance and traditional food.

Although Bourbon is by far the most famous Kentucky beverage, beer is pretty popular too. Especially when it is an artisanal craft beer from the Hopkinsville Brewing Company. The brewing company was established by two veterans with the community in mind and now serves as a popular meeting place for Hopkinsville locals – it also attracts craft-beer enthusiasts from further afield. The tap room offers a selection of at least 8 freshly brewed beers ranging from stout and IPL’s to ales to IPA’s. On most nights you will find a food truck parked outside where you can buy some tasty food to accompany your choice of craft brew.

There has been some form of public library available to the Hopkinsville community since 1874. In the early days the library was located on the 2nd floor of the local bookstore. After several improvements and relocations the current library opened to the public in December 1976. Apart from offering the community a wide variety of reading matter, the library also hosts many activities for all ages including story time for younger children and a variety of craft workshops for older children and adults. Interestingly, this library also offers Book-a-Bike bike rentals and “seed rentals” to encourage the community to plant flowers and vegetables.

Chef Pavil Skorpil has always had a passion for the flavors of traditional Northern Italian cuisine. When the opportunity arose to open his own restaurant in Hopkinsville in 2009, there was no doubt in his mind about what kind of food he would serve. The restaurant has gone from strength to strength since then and is one of Hopkinsville’s most popular eateries today. The menu features all your Italian favorites, perfectly prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients. Because Chef Pavil believes that Italian food is meant to be served with wine you will also find a great selection of wines served by the glass or the bottle - food and wine pairing is available.
