Historic Downtown Walking Tour
Henderson’s unique place in world trade at the close of the 19th century, largely due to the tremendous dark tobacco exporting business located here, provided the setting for the construction of a rather surprising number of expensive homes, given the size of the community. In addition to grand homes, structures include city buildings, the library, banks and downtown businesses. The properties on this walking tour were chosen because of some unusual or special feature of architectural charm or for their historic value. Download the brochure here.
Atkinson Park Riverwalk
A scenic 1.2 mile trail high above the banks of the Ohio River offers an excellent view with resting areas and wheelchair accessibility. The riverbank park offers golf, bike paths, a swimming pool and water slide, playground, picnic facilities, skate park, and an 18 hole disc golf course.
Civil War Driving Tour
The Ohio River Civil War Heritage Corridor encompasses the six Kentucky counties that border Illinois and the Ohio River. The sites on this tour are viewed by way of a driving tour and several additional walking tour stops. Enjoy some of the lesser known, but significant events that shaped the lives of Kentuckians during the Civil War. Download the brochure here.
