Historic Gristmill Stone

100 S Main Street – Adjacent to Veterans Mall

Greenville, KY 42345


Historic Griststone MillAdjacent to the Veterans Mall and at the foundation of the Muhlenberg County Courthouse lies a unique display. A display that pays tribute to John Prine and his famous song “Paradise,” a song that made Muhlenberg County a household name for a time.  The song is about Prine’s childhood memories of Paradise, Kentucky. At the display, one will find a colorful photograph of John Prince with the lyrics to “Paradise,” plus an interactive button that when pressed plays Prine’s most famous song “Paradise.” Also part of the display is a vintage gristmill stone from the Paradise area which has its own interesting history that is documented as well.  A stop and photo-op in downtown not to be missed!
