Evergreen Hills Maze

Puzzle in the Pines

Right in the heart of downtown Flemingsburg is the Evergreen Hills Maze, a 15-acre pine tree maze designed by college math teacher Ann Evans and her husband, Bob. Originally laid out as a family activity by these two avid gardeners, the Maze is now open to the public. Watch as Dave Shuffett and canine companions Toby and Charlie take on the challenge.

This is no ordinary maze. The Evanses created more than 300 rooms, and some rooms have three doors from which to choose. The tall pines prevent you from seeing the paths before you choose your route. Although it is indeed challenging, the couple says the maze is fun for all ages. And if the puzzle proves to be too much for you, they promise to get you out.

The maze is open year round by appointment and every weekend during September and October. Good luck!

Our Town—Adairville

In this week’s “Our Town” segment, we visit Adairville in Logan County. The community is close to Tennessee but home to some fascinating Kentucky history.

Adairville is the site of the 1806 duel fought between Charles Dickinson and future president Andrew Jackson. Jackson called out Dickinson over insults to his wife and himself. Dickinson shot Jackson in the chest, wounding him. Jackson fired back, killing Dickinson.

During the Civil War, this border town was the scene of plundering by both sides. The county was occupied by Confederate troops until February 1862, when the Union forces took control.

Today, Adairville offers a more peaceful scene, with beautiful home gardens, the historic church and cemetery on the Red River, the Barn Art Quilt Trail, and the annual Strawberry Festival.

Dave Does It!

Dahl & Groezinger Scrap Iron and Metals

In our first “Dave Does It” segment, Dave Shuffett travels to Owensboro to work at Dahl & Groezinger Scrap Iron and Metal, a 124-year-old family business. Dave drives a Bobcat, sorts scrap metal, crushes a car, and operates a giant magnet—all in a day’s work!

Dahl & Groezinger is Kentucky’s oldest scrap iron and metal processor, established in 1885 by George Groezinger Sr. and Phillip Dahl. Now run by the fifth generation, the business accepts steel, aluminum, brass, copper and stainless steel.

Put on your hard hat and gloves. It’s time to get to work.
