CONTRIBUTING AUTHOR & ASSISTANT EDITOR
Halloween to Christmas and everything in between, the holidays are here! The cool, crisp weather is giving us all the fall feels as we gear up for my favorite season. Elizabethtown has got it going on, and as always, I am thrilled you grabbed a copy and are getting in on this local goodness. Bushels of thanks to all of our readers, followers, advertisers, and everyone in the community; I am so grateful for your overwhelming support of Elizabethtown Lifestyle Magazine. Have you noticed our historic home feature series? For the past year we have been featuring historic homes throughout Elizabethtown, and this issue’s cover feature is on Lindenwood House. The gorgeous white house on Poplar is the centerpiece of a beautiful estate; we were so lucky to be invited in. The holiday issue typically hosts the most fun features, and this issue is no exception. Hardin County locals decorated early and made the most delicious recipes that we’re so excited to share. Mission Hope for Kids is showcased as well—by the time this magazine releases, The Fall Ball will be here, but we are honored to feature Mission Hope and to be able to raise funds for them with our latest event. Lots of NEW docs are calling Hardin County home these days—check out the new physicians in town in the Baptist Health Hardin feature. For the first time ever, WE HAVE A LOCAL GIFT GUIDE. A labor of love for sure, when you’re out shopping this season, be sure you’re shopping local. Giving back is a primary focus at Elizabethtown Lifestyle, and in line with that, Issue 9 includes Generosity in Education: Investing in the Future through Scholarships at ECTC. The General George Patton Museum is a recent find for us and definitely worth checking out for adults and children alike. Last but not least, my favorite feature Happy Halloween Party—The Most Fabulous Halloween Inspiration Event with a guest appearance from my little dragon.

Lindenwood House Photography: Clagett Photography
The elegant, two-story white house located at 337 West Poplar Street has quite a fascinating history. The home was initially built in 1842 and was owned by Samuel Beale Thomas, the first millionaire to live in Hardin County. He was an investor of the L.&N. Railroad and was generous when donating his money to the residents that needed assistance. It has been well documented that Thomas contributed money and valuable articles to Elizabethtown residents affec ted by The Big Fire in 1869.
Samuel Beale Thomas was close friends with General John Morgan, a Union soldier in the Civil War. Their bond became more evident when The Battle at Elizabethtown took place. In the early hours of December 27, 1862, General Morgan had the entire town surrounded. His soldiers opened fire on the city, causing multiple casualties. Knowing that Samuel Beale Thomas shared a close friendship with General Morgan, the townspeople began running to his home for shelter. It was their safest option. The soldiers were initially instruc ted not to shoot at his house, but once they saw the residents of Elizabethtown flowing in, they opened fire. Thomas quickly ran to the roof of his house to wave a white piece of fabric, causing the soldiers to a ceasefire. Miraculously, the house remained relatively unscathed. The home was originally built with red brick but was later covered with white paint. This helped cement the wealthy, grand reputation it has now. On the exterior walls, you will find ivy climbing upwards. The garden is immaculate and a true place of serenity for current owner Betty Campbell. She purchased the Samuel Beale Thomas House, also referred to as Lindenwood, with her late husband Damon Campbell 30 years ago. They both had a love of old houses, and to keep the place as original as possible, they subtly opened up doorways and rooms that only served to make the home more beautiful. Every room is lived in and gives off a warm and cozy feeling. It boasts having four bedrooms and five bathrooms and is about 4,000 square feet. The old, original floors, fireplaces, and radiators in every room will remind people of the 150 -year-old age of the home. You are met with a welcoming, bright light and charm when entering through the front door. The entryway is open and displays an impressive staircase. The wallpapered walls are covered with art and small keepsakes that belonged to her family. Most notably are the Indonesian nets used to carry babies on their mother’s backs and an antique doll once belonging to her husband’s grandmother. It’s hard not to be mesmerized by the 10ft tall windows and beveled glass doors spread throughout the house. The library, living room, dining room, kitchen, art studio, and screened-in porch make up the 1st floor. The library has floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that have a wide variety of antique books on them. The bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor. Each bedroom has an antique canopy bed with draperies that are reminiscent of a time long forgotten. In the master bathroom and staircase landing, you will find hand-painted rugs that immortalized Betty’s favorite yet aging rugs. The entire place is an homage to family members past and present. Mrs. Betty Campbell helped design the kitchen, and Jenkins and Essex turned the old garage into the library, which she needed to house her impressive book collec tion. She spends a lot of time in her art studio, which replaced the rose garden that belonged to Mrs. Brewer (a past owner). She enjoys painting landscapes and stilllifes. Her paintings are hung throughout the house and undeniably prove her artistic talent. Betty began drawing seriously in the 7th grade. She majored in art at Asbury University and has traveled the United States and abroad to study with artists she admires. “I studied twice a week with my favorite artist, Cindy Overall. Her influence can often be seen in the paintings I create,” says Betty Campbell.
“WE SHAPE OUR BUILDINGS; THEREAFTER, THEY SHAPE US.” — WINSTON CHURCHILL
The love and hard work Betty Campbell has put into Lindenwood House shines in every way possible. She has dedicated 30 years to caring for, and preserving, her historic house. A house that most of the community holds in such high regard. She believes she’s so blessed to live in such a gorgeous, historic home. Without Betty’s efforts, the Lindenwood House would not be what it is today. The house will continue to stand regal and tall, and serve as a reminder of a moment in history that no one could forget.

Local patrons Faye Allen and Carol Brown decorated early and invited us into their beautiful homes this issue. Other gracious citizens Clarence Sams, Nancy Hazle, and Rhonda & Marty Fulkerson took the time to cook some delectable holiday menu items and share their recipes. Join us for inspiration from homes in Hardin County. Holiday Home Photography — Clagett Photography
FAYE ALLEN Like so many others, Faye Allen’s favorite holiday is Christmas. She shares her love of decorating with her friends and family by hosting an “open house” two weeks before the holiday. Faye decorates 17 large trees and nine smaller trees. Most are decorated based on the color of the room in which each tree is located. She also picks several trees to have themes, some of which are dedicated to each grandchild. Her most impactful display is around her living room fireplace. Faye uses “cascading vines, glitter, and bling” to bring out the Winter Wonderland theme that inspires her. She is especially known for her beautiful designs and for being a kind and welcoming hostess.
CAROL BROWN Carol Brown has a passion and eye for decorating. With Christmas being her favorite holiday, she makes sure her house is extremely warm and festive for her seven grandkids. On the Saturday before December 25th, the whole family stays the night, bakes cookies, drives through Christmas in the Park, and spends quality time with one another. Carol has been collecting Christmas decor for 50 years. She especially loves Santas and angels. When Carol decorates her house each season, her main goal is to make it feel like home to everyone who visits. She accomplishes that through her exceptional skills as a decorator and the genuine warmth she exudes to anyone that enters her beautiful abode.

WHITNEY WALLACE “
Becoming a mortgage lender was an easy choice for me; I had the opportunity to mentor with some of the best lenders in the area which led me to transition into my position today. I love getting to meet new people, creating lasting personal relationships with them. Each client and situation is different, but all are equally rewarding. I love when I can help someone who thought they could never own a home and make their dreams a reality. Those experiences never get old. The excitement of closing day is my favorite part of the mortgage loan process—the day clients getting to move into their new homes! —Whitney Wallace, South Central Bank Mortgage Lender

Nelle Thomas has worked diligently to make her vision of Mission Hope For Kids become a reality. When she created Mission Hope For Kids in her living room in 2006, Nelle “wanted to teach kids that there is more out there, and more to life.” Year after year, the organization has grown, and she’s become “blown away by the generosity of community members.”
Mission Hope For Kids focuses on “Touching hearts and changing lives— one child at a time.” Their Mission is “To nurture and restore hope to children at-risk, by providing educational, emotional, physical, and spiritual support to help them reach their potential and find their purpose in life as one community locks arms and works together.”
The organization, which obtained non-profit status in 2012, is financed through donations only. They have locations in Elizabethtown, Radcliff, and Leitchfield. They have served over 200 children and currently have 185 kids enrolled in their program. Recently, Mission Hope for Kids purchased three new vans, funded by donations only to provide their own transportation for the children. To date, there have been 3,052 hours spent on individual homework help and 20,000 volunteer hours served. They work direc tly with 22 schools, with children ranging from PreK-12th. Mission Hope For Kids provides 90 minutes of help with homework each day. Volunteers always eat dinner with the kids and help carve out time for faith and enrichment. Volunteers and mentors are the glue of the Mission Hope family. They are dedicated to continuously building relationships with the kids in their care and have become a second family to them. Their focus areas are Academics, Emotional Guidance, Spiritual & Moral Development, Physical Care, and Family Support. One room in their facility serves as a boutique where the kids can shop for an outfit, shoes, or coat whenever they need it.
The facility, located at 401 West Poplar Street, has a Library where kids can check out books or listen during story time. The books are displayed on shelves facing the front instead of spine-out, which has proven to be more effec tive in grabbing a child’s attention. Their goal is to “cultivate a love of reading.” Each focus and ac tivity at Mission Hope For Kids is designed to nurture and support the needs and development of each child to help them thrive. This December, Mission Hope For Kids is hosting their First Annual Online Christmas Tree Festival and Auc tion. The community will be able to shop for “beautifully decorated Christmas trees, gift baskets, and decor items provided by local organizations from the comfort of your home.” The auc tion begins on December 4th at 5:30 pm and will end at 6 pm on December 5th. Before the auc tion, Mission Hope For Kids will post a video dedicated to the Christmas Tree Festival and Auc tion. They will showcase all of the auc tion items, show student interviews, and end the video with clips recorded throughout the past year. According to their website, “Every year Mission Hope For Kids’ waitlist grows, and we have to turn away more and more children in need because of limited resources.” Events such as their First Annual Online Christmas Tree Festival and Auc tion helps provide more opportunities for children in the community. Nelle Thomas and all the invaluable volunteers give so much of their hearts and devotion to provide the support and enrichment the children in their care need. They are forever grateful to the community for their continued support and generosity.

The past decade has been one of great transformation and growth for Baptist Health Hardin (Hardin). Hardin’s 10-year strategy to recruit and retain the best physicians, care for patients in state-of-the-art facilities and provide exemplary service has resulted in the healthcare system’s tremendous growth and success. Today, Baptist Health Medical Group – the team of physicians and advanced practice clinicians employed by Baptist Health – offers more than 150 physicians and advanced practice clinicians providing care in over 40 specialties including family medicine, orthopedics, cardiology, hematology and oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery and now even obstetrics and gynecology. “Strengthening and growing our team of physicians and advanced practice clinicians remains key to Hardin’s strategy and future,” said Dennis Johnson, Baptist Health Hardin’s president and CEO. “Each of these additions to our team will allow us to offer patients the best care, close to home.” Godfrey and Eklund, PSC, an Elizabethtown family medicine practice composed of well-known and respected physicians, recently joined the Baptist Health Medical Group family. Chris Godfrey, MD, and Brian Eklund, MD, specialize in internal medicine and offer care to generations of patients as do Vivian Bland, MD, and nurse practitioners Tara Oldham, APRN, and Sabrina Coffman, APRN. Baptist Health Medical Group Internal Medicine, the name the group will now be called, officially became a part of the Baptist Health Medical Group on July 1. “Patients will have new resources like MyChart which allows them to communicate, schedule appointments, and see test results effortlessly, and we will have even better connections to the other physicians and specialists practicing in our region,” said Dr. Godfrey. “Hardin is on an exciting growth trajectory, and we are thrilled to join them.” Elizabethtown Physicians for Women, PSC (EPW), another well-known and well-respected practice, also recently joined the Baptist Health Medical Group. Many local residents and their children have been delivered by an EPW provider, as the practice is the biggest delivering practice at Baptist Health Hardin, Kentucky’s ninth busiest delivering hospital. Established in 1976 by Lucian Moreman, MD, and the late Paul Armstrong, MD, the practice was originally opened to provide care in the underserved area. “It’s exciting to think about growing the services and care offered to women, mothers and babies,” said Jason Goodman, MD, Baptist Health Medical Group OB/GYN. “We are happy to practice as Baptist Health Medical Group OB/GYN and as an official part of the Hardin family.” The new team members hit the ground running and the transition is running smoothly for physicians, advanced practices clinicians, staff and patients, according to Sheila Smallwood, assistant vice president, Baptist Health Medical Group. “The future looks very bright as Baptist Health invests in our hospital and system, and as our medical group continues to grow,” Smallwood said.

Generosity in Education Investing in the Future through Scholarships at ECTC Each year, locally funded scholarships help residents throughout the region take new steps on their path to a better life at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. Donors who recognize the benefits of investing in education are able to make a big difference for individual students through scholarship donations of any amount. Most donors invest $500 per year to help students achieve their goals. Custom giving options also allow donors to support academic programs or career pathways that matter most to them.

EQUITY THROUGH EDUCATION SCHOLARSHIP In all, there are over 40 locally supported ECTC scholarship funds. Among them is the Equity Through Education Scholarship, awarded this year to Justin Puentes. A rising sophomore at ECTC, Puentes is well on his way to completing an Associate of Arts, with plans to transfer to the University of Louisville to follow up with a bachelor’s degree in information technology by 2024. The Equity Through Education Scholarship is unique in that it rewards students of diverse ethnic backgrounds who have demonstrated a determination and desire to succeed. In addition, each student submitted an essay explaining how they might increase equity and inclusiveness through their own communities. Recognizing that information technology careers will remain in high demand, Puentes plans to share his knowledge and experience with computers and cyber security to communities in financial need. It can be more difficult for individuals in these communities to obtain opportunity and access to practice and learn such skills. His long-term goals are to attract under-represented minorities who may come from such backgrounds to the information technology field. He chose ECTC due to its close proximity to home. As a full-time student, he appreciates the donors who made this scholarship possible. “College is a major pivot point in the lives of young adults. Students prepare themselves to enter the workforce by building a good work ethic and improving time management,” he said. “I am very grateful for people who understand the importance of education. Thank you for your investment into my future.” To learn more about ECTC scholarships, visit Elizabethtown.kctcs.edu/scholarships.

HELPING STUDENTS WHEN LIFE HAPPENS Academic success often depends on a variety of non-academic circumstances, many of which may be outside students’ control. A medical emergency, sudden loss of income, childcare needs, and food insecurity are just a few of the barriers ECTC students have faced. When the pandemic began in the Spring 2020 semester, compassionate, generous people stepped up to help students stay on track to meet their education and career goals.
The ECTC Student Emergency Fund, which provides financial assistance to students at risk of dropping out because of unforeseen circumstances, was started by ECTC faculty member Khondaker Haque. Many other faculty, staff, community members, businesses and United Way of Central Kentucky have since contributed to the fund, and have collectively awarded more than $12,500 to lend a helping hand to 27 ECTC students. The money allowed students to meet immediate needs such as housing, transportation and technology access like internet service and computers. Almost all of the students awarded successfully completed the semester, four have already earned their degrees, and 15 either continued their educational journey the following semester or re-enrolled after taking a semester break. As one automotive technology student explained, the Student Emergency Fund provides options for keeping dreams alive. A grant from the fund helped him when he would have otherwise dropped out during his first semester.“My dream has always been to build my own garage and start my own automotive repair shop,” he said. “When I thought my dreams were gone, I was blessed to have had a conversation with a certain individual, who connected me to the Emergency Fund, and he helped me find the answer I needed.” Throughout the pandemic, generous donors have also stepped up to support The Lunch Box, ECTC’s student food pantry. “We started off serving students on campus to get them through their classes. However, the pandemic revealed the need was greater, and we’ve been providing them groceries, gift cards and hygiene supplies,” said Associate Professor Charles Coulston, noting the tremendous impact the pantry has had on students. “The look on their faces when you’re able to hand them a bag of groceries is unmistakable.” Coulston and Associate Professor Deena Lilygren work together to operate The Lunch Box and said food insecurity directly affects students’ ability to succeed in the classroom and beyond. “The goal of the Lunchbox is simply to feed students who are experiencing food insecurity,” Lilygren said, adding that even small donations can make a big difference. “Monetary donations are the best way to support The Lunch Box so that we can provide a variety of foods, meet students’ specific needs and avoid battling expiration dates.”

This year, thanks to generous donors, Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is revving up its highly sought-after motorcycle safety class and putting even more power behind its automotive technology program. ECTC Workforce Solutions relaunched the Motorcycle Safety Foundation Basic Rider course in August, after community donors Lori King, Carl Swope, Kevin Addington and LeeAnna Dowan collectively gifted six motorcycles and safety equipment to the program. “We are thrilled to bring back this very popular community education class,” said ECTC Dean of Workforce Solutions and Technical Programs Mike Hazzard. “We are so grateful to the donors who recognized the need and made the course a reality.”
The motorcycle safety class is one example of how ECTC donors are able to match their gifts to their interests. “It’s important for new riders to understand how to be safe out there on the road, not to mention there are great discounts for insurance rates,” said Dowan, attorney at law of Dowan Law Offices. Swope, President and CEO of Swope Family of Dealerships, also said the course is an important resource for motorcycle riders. “Donating to this program is important to me because I’m a passionate motorcyclist,” he said. “I know so many people that ride motorcycles well and a few that don’t. I wish those that don’t would take advantage of this course because it could save them a whole lot of pain by learning how to ride a motorcycle well.” For automotive technology students, the generosity of Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky is ensuring students are at the forefront in the high-demand automotive field. This summer, Toyota donated a 2020 Avalon and a 2019 RAV4 Hybrid, providing ECTC students the opportunity to learn the latest technology and prepare to meet automotive workforce demands. Without donors like Toyota, ECTC wouldn’t be able to add to automotive technology fleet as often as needed to keep up with the industry’s ever-evolving technology. Automotive technology students inspect a RAV4 Hybrid donated to the college by Toyota Motor Manufacturing of Kentucky.
People come to ECTC for a common purpose — better lives. ECTC connects those seeking to change lives, from students working to advance their careers through education, to donors who want to make a meaningful and lasting impact. Because of the broad scope of services ECTC offers to students, employers and our community, there are countless ways donors can advance the mission of the college.

THE SIGN OF THE LION TAVERN Photography: Thomas Deaton Before coffee shops and boutiques, the 22-27 Public Square building went by several different names. Since the founding of Elizabethtown, the building has been known as the Sign of the Lion Tavern, Eagle House, Morris House, Taylor Hotel, Lion Hotel, and the Smith Hotel. Many referred to the Smith Hotel as being “one of the most historic landmarks” in Elizabethtown, with its location being “Possibly the most historic corner in Elizabethtown.” The structure’s first identity came about when depictions of fierce lions were placed on both sides of where the business sign would go. After construction was finished in 1798, Major James Crutcher named it The Sign of the Lion Tavern. He sold it to Daniel Waide a few years later. Waide was one of the early trustees of the Hardin Academy. The board would often hold their meetings there. Before the brick building we see today, it was a log cabin resting in that exact spot of town. The building has been used primarily as taverns and inns ever since. As the Smith Hotel, J.M. Smith and his son J.M Smith, Jr managed the business. During that time, the hotel was known to be one of the town’s leading institutions with a “great reputation for good food and lodging.” The Smith Hotel, which was bathroom-less, once housed a florist shop, appliance store, barbershops, offices, and a grocery store. The Civil War era brought about another change for the tavern. The name was changed to Eagle House and stayed in operation for exactly 50 years. It even served as the location where Union soldiers holed up in the 1860s. They famously wrote all over the walls due to a lack of paper, and miraculously some of the writing is still visible today. In 2021, this historic structure continues to house multiple shops and businesses, all of which have contributed to the revitalization of Elizabethtown’s historic district.

Happy Halloween Party

candy charcuterie A playful take on a party fave.
Grab your charcuterie board and pile on the treats. We used a fun plastic skeleton and plastic spiders paired with a colorful mix of candy from Kroger. Be sure to choose candy options for all ages; chewy or gummy candy is fine for older children and chocolate for the littles. Black charcuterie board available at FINE House & Garden or finehg.com.
the secret potion for a perfect party
Whether you make your own or order one from Pottery Barn, the fastest way to get into the Halloween spirit is to don a spooky get up. If your kid cries like Henry did, it’s A-OK—still cute.
Less dangerous than wielding knives to carve, painting pumpkins is fun for all ages. Buy washable paint and a variety of sponges and brushes; have newspaper on hand to cover surfaces before beginning. Don’t be scared of a little glitter. It’s fun to choose a mix of orange, yellow, white, and specialty pumpkins of all sizes.
Skeletons, spider webs, and ghosts—oh my! Halloween is the one holiday when it’s fine to buy cheap decor. It somehow feels nostalgic. Mixing in a few timeless pieces like our ghost mugs and candy corn pie plates offer elements that can be remembered for generations to come.
set the mood
Scents and sounds appeal to the senses: Try playing an album of Halloween songs or ghoulish sounds. Take it one step further by burning pumpkin spice or apple cider candles.
CONTINUED... Snacks vs. a meal
Having hangry dragons on hand is no fun, so stock up on food other than candy. Whether or not you serve a full meal should be based on the hours of your event; if you host a party during lunch or dinner, guests will likely be expecting a meal.
stock the bar
Grown-ups need treats too and the higher proof variety never hurt. Please drink responsibly.
If you’re not into planning your own Halloween party, head over to Hardin County Honda—the sweetest little witch will be there passing out candy with the whole HCH fam Saturday, October 30 from 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM at 5608 N Dixie Highway, Elizabethtown. For information on additional Trunk-or-Treat events, follow us on Facebook and Instagram at @elizabethtownlifestyle. We will be posting a list the last week of October.

ISSUE 8 LAUNCH PARTY
Venue: Bourbon Barrel Tavern I Planning : Goldenrod + Glory I Floral Design: Lovely Leaves Chocolate Covered Strawberries: Elizabethtown Florist & Gifts - Fruits & Berries
How have we already made it through EIGHT MAGAZINES? Issue 9 is obviously my current fave, but Issue 8 and the summer launch party at Bourbon Barrel Tavern was truly one for the books. We opted for an indoor event to beat the heat. If you haven’t caught on by now that we host events every issue, you may never, but the tides are changing: Hosting events that bring the community together is my favorite part of Elizabethtown Lifestyle, but this coming year, 2022, we will be hosting various events to give back to the community we hold dear. We’re hoping to dive deeper into community involvement than ever before. There are wonderful organizations in Hardin County working hard to give back every day, and we want to do our part if only by raising awareness and raising funds. It’s so much more than swag bags or free drinks—although we do always have those. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram at @ElizabethtownLifestyle or subscribe to our email list for upcoming events.
