The Bullitt County History Museum

It Happened in ...

In March 2013, Charles Hartley began writing columns capturing glimpses of what happened in Bullitt County in different months and years taken from the issues of The Pioneer News. Having completed ten years of columns, he now returns to the beginning and shares again those previous columns, together with occasional additions gleaned from his archives.

Here is a link to the most recent column: | April: 1999, 1984, 1954, 1924 |.

We have combined the columns into yearly pages, and links to those are given below. As we revise the earlier columns, these pages will be updated. Click on the year to select that page.
