Greenville, KY Attractions

MCPL's Thistle Cottage

122 South Cherry Street

Greenville, KY 42345


Greenville is privileged to be the home of the Muhlenberg County Public Library’s Thistle Cottage, formerly known as 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. In late 2013, the Duncan home was gifted to the Muhlenberg County Public Library by the City of Greenville.

The MCPL opted to change the name of the museum & art gallery to“Thistle Cottage”. The name change lends to the history of the Duncan home as Mr. Duncan Sr., builder of the home, lovingly nick-named the house “Thistle Cottage” as homage to his home country of Scotland.

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! Thistle Cottage is also home to W.G. Duncan Coal Company Museum which contains a wealth of coal history in equipment, pictures, books, documents, ledgers from and about western Kentucky coal mines and much more.

The purpose of Thistle Cottage 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.

Muhlenberg Community Theatre Inc.

119 North Main Street

Greenville, KY 42345


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!

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!
