Though no travel has been allowed on the Kentucky River in Henry County since 1985, some of the river’s bustling past is preserved at the Henry County Historical Society.
Henry County Historical Society docent Earl “Hammer” Smith said at one time there were 14 locks and dams serving commerce on the river including the ones at Lockport. “I’m not sure if any of them are operating anymore,” he said, “but that’s the way a lot of people came to Henry County.”
