Historical Sites

Sherman Tavern
One of the last stagecoach stops left standing in Kentucky is our very own Sherman Tavern.  Friends of the Sherman Tavern (private donors and the G.C. Historical Society) are in the process of restoring the Sherman Tavern in Dry Ridge.  The future plans for this facility are to have schools and organizations tour the historic site with re-creations of the life and times of those who worked/stayed at taverns during their travels through Kentucky.  Contact our offices for updated information as to opening and tour dates.

William Arnold Log Cabin:
Built in the early 19th century, this was once the home of William Arnold, Founder of Williamstown.  The two story house is constructed of huge poplar logs with a wood shingle roof characteristic of the log houses built during Kentucky’s early days.  Maintained and cared for by the Grant County Historical Society, the building contains pioneer era furniture, memorabilia, early photographs, and artifacts of early Grant County.
The cabin is open Tuesday – Friday from 2 to 6 p.m.  Saturday – 2 to 7 p.m.
Cabin closed on Sunday and Monday (except for Monday holidays when cabin will be open from 2 to 6 p.m.)

Rice Chapel
Resting in the Grant County Park, Crittenden was once used by the African American community in the County.  The facility was taken to the Park for preservation and all to visit.
