    Thomas Smith known as the ‘Mercantile Prince of the West’ was born in 1790 when Kentucky was still part of Virginia. His father Nicholas Smith married Mary Jones and settled on 500 acres near New Castle. Smith inherited the farm from his father, but took an interest after his education in trading.

  • Run as fast as you can to the hills

    Campbellsburg Elementary Student of the Week
    5th grader Faith Sutherland

    Are you looking forward to middle school?
    I’m nervous and scared. It’s a really big building and I’m nervous that I won’t be able to do the work.

    What is your favorite subject?
    Social Studies. It’s fun to read about U.S. history. I like science too. I like to learn about the world, nature and how it’s made.

    Do you have any pets?
    I have a dog named Rover.
