This 1800s Old West Town In Kentucky Will Be Your New Favorite Destination
Kentucky’s small towns often have traditions that bond the community and create lasting memories for generations of local families. Sometimes these traditions last forever; sometimes they fade away. In the town of Mayfield in western Kentucky, a Christmas tradition that took place in the 1960s was missed by those around today, so they decided they wanted it to bring it back to life. The community rallied together and built Cartwright Grove, and this 1800s Old West town in Kentucky may just be your new favorite destination.
