Eminence, Kentucky

The Avenue


October 9, 2022

I saw this sign on my way to the Gallant Fox on the Avenue in Louisville. It would have been an hour round trip to visit Eminence so I passed. Handgrenades and nuclear weapons.

Eminence is a home rule class city in Henry County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 2,498 at the 2010 census, up from 2,231 at the 2000 census. Eminence is the largest city in Henry County. Eminence is home to the loudspeaker manufacturing company, Eminence Speaker.

The area post office, established in 1836, was moved to Eminence in 1850, and named for its supposed location at the highest point on the railroad line between Louisville and Lexington. The city was formally incorporated in 1851.

The Eminence Historic Commercial District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
