Today's Features

  • Oldham County is a place many call home. Its history is steeped in a rich and colorful past that has been preserved through various court documents, diaries, old newspapers, letters and oral histories. Dr. Nancy Sterns Theiss, Ph. D. has taken these stories and compiled them into a book that takes a fascinating look at a county that has a strong connection to the Ohio River and has played an important role in shaping the state of Kentucky.

  • Two local churches are helping make Christmas special for students at a school in the mountains of eastern Kentucky.

    Pewee Valley Presbyterian and Crestwood Christian Church are taking donations for the Lotts Creek Settlement School, which is based in Knott County.

    One shared member, Jill MacNiven, who leads mission trips to the school and collects donations year-round, is leading the church’s Christmas time donations.

  • At first glance, it may not seem like Lisa Wells has struggled with health issues.

    But the Crestwood resident has defeated two types of cancer before hitting her 40th birthday. Less than two years out from her latest diagnosis, Wells recently became a big fundraiser for an annual cancer walk in the area.

  • Betsy Lowe never thought her daughter, Jessica, would be halfway around the world.

    Jessica is currently in Hermosa, Philippines on a mission trip through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. A former track runner at North Oldham, Jessica was in her junior year of college at Brigham Young University in Utah when she received a letter saying she would be serving her mission trip in the Philippines.

    “This is a test of faith, not only for us but for her,” she said.

  • The Ballardsville Fire Department is set to build a second station in southern Oldham County after getting approval from the Oldham County Planning and Zoning Commission.

    The commission unanimously approved the second station, which will be built at 2414 W. Highway 22 in Crestwood. It will also have a public entrance to the station from Montford Circle.

  • What started as an item on his bucket list turned into a world record for Crestwood resident Jason McNabb.

    “When I was a kid, I used to read about Guinness World Records in the Scholastic Reader magazine at school,” McNabb said. “I was always amazed at the feats people accomplished.

    “There’s a fine line between amazing and crazy, I guess.”

  • Over the last month I have seen and heard more Christmas commercials than ever and we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving.

     Thanksgiving has become the forgotten holiday which is sadly all too common in America.  For a land blessed with such an amazing bounty we sure do have a lot of whining, moaning and complaining about the lack of stuff and that is just under my own roof.  Have you decided to give a living will of thankfulness to your family and friends?  What keeps you from being more thankful?

  • The Teddy Bear Tree is here!

    This holiday season the History Center is again partnering with the Tri-County Community Action Council to help brighten Christmas for children in the tri-county area.  

    Stop by during our regular business hours to choose a child to purchase gifts for this Christmas.  

    You may choose one child or an entire family, the choice is yours.  

    Gifts are due back to the Oldham County History Center Tuesday, Dec. 10.
