Head down KY 81 to McLean County and you’ll discover Calhoun nestled along the Green River. In 1862 during the Civil War the town was briefly captured by a band of Confederate guerrillas. Later that year Federal troops attacked and defeated a Confederate force there. Calhoun became known for a steam sawmill and flour mill and a half dozen stores and hotels. At the turn of the century, the town became part of the industrial revolution when it included McLean County Industries and began production of agricultural products, coal and timber.
