Communities Hall

Commmunities Hall - Ben Messer StoreThe Communities Hall features exhibits on coal mining, farming implements, Knox County schools, athletics, a moonshine still, and churches, including Lynn Prichard's extensive collection of church building pictures from 1985.

Items of interest include a quilt made from feed sacks, large 1977 flood photo of Barbourville, and Ben Messer's Country Store, which reminds us of what was for sale in the early 20th century.
