Peace Garden

North Main St., Hazard, KY 41701

During the fall of 2008 two Girl Scouts, Tyra Lamb and Lauren Little, of Girl Scout Troop 316, attended the Pathfinder's board meeting in order to suggest a collaboration to develop a peace garden next to Main Street in downtown Hazard near the North Fork of the Kentucky River. The Pathfinders believed that such a garden would be ideally suited to serve as the central point of interest along the walking and biking path that would be built along the river. Learn more...
