We have been to multiple concerts here. It has great acoustics and is small enough that there really isn't a bad seat.

The four-room cabin where country music divas Loretta Lynn and Crystal Gayle grew up is open to visitors.
This was a very worthwhile stop. We arrived in Van Lear and stopped at the Webb Country Store to inquire about a tour, and was given directions to get to the house. Roads are paved, except for the driveway. The roads are very very narrow in places, so use caution traveling to Butcher Hollow. Once we reached the house, parking was very close to the porch steps. The home sets on the side of a hill, it takes you back to another era. As I approached the porch, there was an older gentlemen who welcomed me, he was Loretta's brother Herman. The tour costs $5 per person and was given by Herman, we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide. The home is very small, a front room, bedroom, and kitchen. Most of the furniture that is in the home is original, the few pieces that aren't Herman told us where they came from. If you are a Loretta Lynn fan, then this is a must stop location. We walked through the home with Herman and then I went back through again to take pictures. It was a very good visit!

Birthplace of Loretta Lynn. When Loretta Lynn belted, "Well, I was born a coal miner's daughter/In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Hollow," it not only skyrockted "The Queen of Country Music" to additional fame outside the realm of country music fans, but it merited her the everlasting respect of every person connected directly or indirectly with coal mining or mountain life. Visit Butcher Hollow, located in scenic Johnson County. Loretta's brother, Herman Webb, is curator of the Butcher Hollow Home.
Seeing Loretta's home place brought back memories of my own childhood. Being from Johnson County, I had never visited Butcher Hollow. So glad I did. After seeing her home, I realized that she was so much better off than my own family were. We didn't live in a company house. I love the smell of the place, the beauty and serenity of sitting on the front porch. A true image of life at that time. A must see! And I met a couple from "Up North" as we from Eastern KY say...

"Eastern Kentucky's Premier Coal-Mining Community of the 1920's and 1930's"
Its a pretty good exhibit, it was just getting ran down. I was suprised to find that there was a soda "jerk-bar" that had been saved from a local phamacmy and moved there. The display and exhibits were nice, but lice a lot in the area. One visit will do it.

The East Kentucky Science Center and Planetarium, located on the Prestonsburg campus of Big Sandy Community and Technical College has a 3000 square foot exhibit space, a 40 seat classroom, a gift shop, and a 40 foot domed planetarium, seating 85, that is one of the most technologically advanced planetariums in the United States. The Science Center, owned and operated by Big Sandy Community and Technical College, is open to the public Tuesday through Saturday, with planetarium shows at 2:00 and laser shows at 3:15. On Saturday there is an added planetarium show at 12:30.
As a part of a summer program, my team and I had a wonderful opportunity of visiting the East Kentucky Science Center. We watched a wonderful 30 minutes laser show and the night sky in the Planetarium. My favorite part was looking at the stars and learning about different constellations. Ideal place for learning about stars, technology, and the universe.

I occasionally stop here when in the area. Ky Route 114 goes through the battlefield just off US 23 near Prestonsburg. You turn right off the highway into the property and find yourself in the middle of the historical displays. There are several sign displays to describe the battle between Union & CSA forces in January 1862 and how the outcome lead to Union control of the Big Sandy Valley.
