Our Town: Hazard | Kentucky Life | KET


- Advertisement -

Both Hazard and Perry County were named in honor of a naval hero of the War of 1812, Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry (of “We have met the enemy, and they are ours” fame). Hazard is also known as “the Queen City of the Mountains” and Amy Hess takes a look at the town’s origins and what it has to offer to both residents and visitors.

Hess makes stops at the Treehouse Café, a popular downtown restaurant, and gets a hands-on science lesson at the Challenger Learning Center of Kentucky. At Bobby Davis Museum and Park, Hess learns about the history of the museum’s revered namesake, a World War II veteran who was killed at the end of the war.

We also meet former mayor Nan Gorman, who reflects on the legacy of her late husband, Bill Gorman, mayor of Hazard for more than three decades.
