History on Tap: The Legacy of John C. Latham, Jr.
July 27 @ 6:30 pm CDT
No single person has left a greater mark on Hopkinsville than John C. Latham, Jr. Born here in 1844, the Confederate veteran amassed great wealth as a stock broker in New York City in the mid to late 19th century. A great devotion and concern for his hometown amounted to large contributions to local causes. His generosity provided for road improvements, the development of Peace and Virginia parks, the construction of the Hotel Latham, a number of Confederate memorials, and much more. Enjoy a Latham Lightguards Lavender Blonde ale from the tap while you learn more about this Hopkinsville legend.
