Hart County is located in what I consider the beginning of western Kentucky, where the higher part of the state slopes down to the shorter western section. Hart County is centered between Hardin County on the Ohio River and Warren County that almost reaches the Tennessee border. The county seat of Hart is Munfordville, a small town of less than 2,000 people. The Green River flows through the county. Mammoth Cave National Park is a draw for people the world over. Ritchey and I visited this area in May of 2016. It was a great day for photographs!
One of the cemeteries we visited in Hart County was Hammondsville – a rural cemetery in the northern section of the county. It is situated next to Three Forks Bacon Creek Baptist Church, but is the cemetery for the Hammondville community and the church, too, I’m sure. Notice there is an ‘s’ in the cemetery name, but in there is no ‘s’ in the small town’s name. Today I will share a few of the gravestones we photographed during our visit.
