Nestled between Rough River and Nolin lakes, Grayson County is one of Kentucky’s overlooked gems. More than 24,000 people call it home. Many have generations-old ties to Leitchfield and the farmland around communities such as Caneyville, Clarkson, Big Clifty and Short Creek. But newcomers are welcome, too. Many have pulled off the Western Kentucky Parkway and never looked back.
A community devoted
Leitchfield and surrounding Grayson County are places where family, faith and neighborliness are central to a way of life. Mountain Workshops participants tell stories of people in this community in the videos and picture stories below.
