The town boasts a beautiful, historic courthouse where court proceedings are still held, the historic Winchester Opera House, and the Bluegrass Heritage Museum. There are also many unique shops and restaurants downtown which make Winchester a great town in which to live and to visit on weekends.
One of the most interesting hiking trials in Central Kentucky is located in Clark County near the Kentucky River. Lower Howard’s Creek Nature and Heritage Preserve is over 300 acres and runs along both sides of Lower Howard Creek. The John Holder Trail is accessed near Hall’s on the River. According to a Lexington Herald-Leader article, around two dozen businesses existed along the trail during the 1770s through the Civil War, including sawmills, distilleries, tanneries, blacksmith shops, and more. As you walk along the trail, you will pass the ruins of stone buildings, stone fences, grave sites, and remnants of the Salt Springs Trace. If you haven’t done so already, the trail is definitely worth a visit.
