This page is in reference to Casey County History and Hero's
We are going to dedicate one entire room of our Hatfield and McCoy Museum to the History and artifacts of Casey County, and to the Hero's of Casey County- living or deceased.
How it will work is, if you know/knew someone that you feel has contributed to Casey County or have item, artifact, or memorabilia that you feel has relevance to Casey County's History or you feel would be of interest to others who may visit the Hatfield and McCoy Museum we will allow you to place it and its history into the Museum for viewing. The item will remain yours and you are free to remove it at any time you so desire.
Casey County Hero's, if you knew someone or know someone now that you feel deserves to be recognized for their service to their Country, County or City, or has contributed to Casey County in a positive way and you would like to see them recognized we want to do that for you and for them. All you have to do is write a brief summery about the person you are recommending and why you feel they should be recognized publicly.
Mail your recommendation to Hatfield & McCoy Museum P.O. Box 211 Liberty, Kentucky 42539 with all pertinent information on the person, a photo of the person that you feel they wouldn't mind being portrayed in the Museum and your phone number so we can contact you if we need more information.
Remember, Casey County Veterans, former and past Police/Sheriff's/Deputies, Fire Fighters, EMS, Teachers, Public Officials, etc.
Ref: Veterans, nominating a Veteran requires nothing more than their name, it doesn't matter if they served during war time or not, they enlisted or answered the draft knowing they were willing to give their life protecting their country. For that, we owe them a debt we could never repay.
Once again, we are dedicating one room to this project. Once this room is full of artifacts photos etc that will be it and we will withdraw the application process.

After the attack on the World Trade Center -911 within hours I can recall Ron Luster organizing other volunteers to join him in traveling to New York to assist in the rescue and clean-up of the Twin Towers. He put others above himself and answered the call. While most of us wanted to or wish we had done, Ron Luster actually did it. He will always be a Hero in mine and Shelia’s eyes. Thank You Ron Luster
