Stairwell and Lobby
Your tour actually begins as you enter the Barbourville Municipal Building. At the bottom of the stairwell is a photograph of the old courthouse and the bell that once rang from its uppermost reaches. Information signs and large photographs line the walls as visitors ascend to the second floor where the museum is located. The large lobby at the top of the stairs contains several of our favorite photos enlarged for your enjoyment, whether the museum proper is open or not.
