Ready and waiting for Timeline 225, this empty building has been spruced up.
Heritage Days is a time for Hickman Countians to reflect on events that shaped the region, and stories of those who gave Hickman County a legacy worth celebrating.
For 2017, reminders of our past will be hard to miss!
Downtown display windows for Timeline 225 have been spruced up, literally, with a dark green paint for Heritage Days 2017, September 5-9.
The horizontal timeline will detail 225 years of Hickman County history and coincides with this year's celebration of Kentucky statehood, 1792-2017. Located adjacent to the Historical Society, Timeline 225 will be the starting point of a downtown window display featuring the photographic history of Clinton's court square.
The "Walk-Around Timeline" will run from Heritage Days through Civil War Days in mid-October.
