With a fabulous location in eastern Lincoln County, the small town of Crab Orchard, Kentucky, is a great place to buy a home roughly ten miles southeast of Stanford. Crab Orchard is a well-established community with roots dating back to the early 1800s. The town was an early pioneer station off of Skaggs Trace, near the end of Logan Trace, named for a large crab apple orchard that stretched from Logan’s Station to Hazel Patch. Between 1827 and 1922, there were numerous mineral springs in the area, as well as several hotels and taverns. The first resort was opened by Jack Davis in 1827, and Crab Orchard Springs was one of the state’s most sought-after hydrotherapy destinations by the 1860s.
Beyond this fascinating history, Crab Orchard is home to several historic sites and landmarks. Among these attractions are The Howard Theater, built in 1947, and the William Whitley House State Historic Site. Residents of Crab Orchard also enjoy proximity to recreation destinations like Cedar Creek Lake, located between the town and Stanford. Cedar Creek Lake is a seven-hundred-and-eighty-four-acre reservoir and the state’s second-largest state-controlled lake. The area also encompasses a variety of small retailers and restaurants, providing some shopping and dining opportunities.
