  • New Masonic Emblem placed in Pewee Valley

    During a windstorm in 2008, the Pewee Valley’s Masonic Lodge’s emblem blew off of the Little Colonel Playhouse.

  • Train observation station to be installed in La Grange

    Construction began Thursday on a two-story observation tower to be installed on the corner of Main and Cedar Streets in downtown La Grange.
    The project, led by Discover Downtown La Grange (DDL), was designed by former mayor Bill Lammlein and will be used as a station to observe trains that pass through the city.
    The idea came to DDL, because of the many tourists who come from all over the country and in some cases, the world, to take photos of the trains passing through the historic town.
