Museums and Tours
Given the number of local resources for museums and tours, you can learn over a long period of time what Elizabethtown's history has been since Hardin County was first settled in 1793. But the history museums have various topics beyond local history, as there are also several Civil War history sites and the more specialized Swope's Cars of Yesteryears Museum. If you want to build arts, crafts, and culture into your history learning, the Historic State Theater and Clothesline of Quilts display are great places to tap into. For cultural history, check out the Emma Reno Connor Black History Gallery.
