MCTI is located in the old Palace Theatre which is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. In the 1900’s silent movies and vaudeville acts were presented at the Theatre followed by "talkies" aka movies when they became popular. The theatre closed in 1970 and was later used as a wrestling arena. In 1983 MCTI purchased the establishment and converted it into a stage performance theatre. In 1998 the theatre underwent major renovations to become a true fine arts facility. They present four quality productions each year, consisting of musicals, comedies, drama, children’s plays and much more.
Most recently, MCTI has renovated the building adjacent to the theatre and created an intimate space for dinner theatres and cabaret-style shows. Be on the lookout for more information on this new avenue of theatrical expression!
In addition, courtesy of the Greenville Tourism Commission, a replica of the original Palace Theatre Marquee has been added to the building complete with neon lighting. The picture in the upper right hand corner features the new marquee with a Greenville residents restored classic car. It is truly a sight to behold!

Sandi is the most awarded female vocalist in contemporary Christian music history, with 40 Dove Awards.

She has released over 30 albums, including her latest Dove Award winning album, The Edge of the Divine (2010). Her debut full length symphonic pops album Broadway Stories, conducted by Maestro Jack Everly, was released on October 18, 2011.
Sandi was introduced to the world with her rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" during the rededication of the Statue of Liberty in 1986. Virtually overnight she became one of the country’s best-loved performers. Her version of the national anthem has become synonymous with patriotic celebration, including performances at “A Capitol Fourth” with the National Symphony, the Indianapolis 500, the Dedication of Camp David Chapel, and "ABC’s Fourth of July Special."
While her thirty-year career is heavily rooted in the gospel music industry, Sandi has had the opportunity in more recent years to extend her career outside the genre. Sandi has performed with symphonies across the country, including the New York Pops, Boston Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, Houston Symphony, and Oklahoma City Philharmonic.

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!
