Greenville is privileged to be the home of the Duncan Center Museum & Art Gallery. The historic 1912 home was built by William Graham Duncan, Owner of The Duncan Coal Company, for a mere $10,000. It is a beauty to behold with its Spanish mission style design and red tiled roof. Great detail was given to every aspect of the home which today, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The home was donated to the city of Greenville in 1986 by Hamilton R. Duncan, Sr. and it officially became the Duncan Center Museum and Art Gallery in 1989. The Duncan House then became Muhlenberg County’s first historical museum and art gallery.

The art gallery showcases work from local artisans as well as works from all over and features a rotating exhibit schedule so you will always see something new! The Duncan Center is also home to W.G. Duncan Coal Company Museum which contains a wealth of coal history in equipment, pictures, books, documents, ledgers and much more.

The purpose of the Duncan Center is to preserve the art, history and culture of Muhlenberg County and Kentucky and to provide opportunities to see and experience the visual arts. It also provides residents and visitors alike access to historical collections. Check out the upcoming events below…there is always something on the horizon!

Muhlenberg County Courthouse

100 South Main Street

Greenville, KY 42345

Welcome to the Muhlenberg County Courthouse, the crown jewel of downtown Greenville! The current courthouse is the fourth since the county’s inception in 1798. It was built in 1907 and designed by the Louisville architectural firm Kenneth McDonald and William J. Dodd with Bailey and Koerner acting as the contractors.
 
It is truly one of the most beautiful in the state and is a very elaborate example of the classical Beaux-Arts style. The courthouse is a two story brick structure fronted by a two-story, Corinthian order portico. The courthouse first underwent major renovations in 1975, but the most extensive renovations since it was built just finished in 2011. The dome was completely re-built and according to Campbellsville Industries it is has the largest open belfry of any pre-fabricated cupola in the nation. It is also considered the second largest clock/tower dome in the state of Kentucky! Not only was the building completely renovated, but all the grounds have been renovated as well. New sidewalks, historic lampposts, landscaping and retaining walls have been installed. In addition, speakers were attached to each lamppost and have been connected to satellite radio. So, soft acoustic music is piped in 24 hours a day, 7 days a week around the square and throughout downtown. 

      The courthouse is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a sight to behold and a wonderful addition to downtown Greenville. It is the heartbeat of the city and lends the city an unmistakable charm that is unique to Greenville alone. It is at the center of county and city events and offers a one-of-a-kind backdrop found only in Muhlenberg County.

The courthouse is open Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and houses a number of county services including the Judge Executive, Sherriff’s Department, County Clerk, Election Office, PVA Office, Deeds & Records, etc… The building and grounds are open to the public, so feel free stop by during business hours and enjoy a piece of restored history that just so happens to still be with us today!
