St. Thomas Catholic Church and Cemetery is located in rural Nelson County, Kentucky, just off US31E south of Bardstown, on Highway 2227. This road ends at the church. It is a very beautiful place, very quiet and peaceful. Fields are farmed around St. Thomas, indicative of the life lived by the early settlers. The Howard family was one of the first to arrive – coming to the area in 1787. In 1810 Thomas Howard willed his farm to the church. The cemetery is beautiful and taken care of very well. The few stones that have broken are placed on a concrete slab where the original stone sat. These photos were taken October 11, 2013.
