Hardin County History Museum
Dedicated to the preservation of local history, the Hardin County History Museum collects, preserves and displays artifacts and documents of people living in the area going back to early Native American residents and explorers including Squire Boone, Daniel Boone’s Brother and Abraham Lincoln. Along with Lincoln family history, the Civil War history of Hardin County is on display. There’s a replica of a log cabin and a general store that visitors can wander through. And the history lessons continue into modern times with displays on African-American history and the Vietnam War.
