About Henderson

Henderson is a city located in Henderson County, along the Ohio River in Western Kentucky. It was called "Red Banks" by the native Americans who originally lived and hunted there because of the reddish clay soil on the banks of the river. As of the 2000 census, the city population was 27,373 and the metropolitan population was 342,815. It is part of the Evansville, Indiana metropolitan area.

The city has been called home by ornithologist, naturalist, and painter John James Audubon as well as blues legend W.C. Handy. For more than 100 years the city has been home to the Southern Cherokee Nation.[1]

Education

The Henderson County school system includes eight elementary schools: A.B. Chandler, Spottsville, East Heights, Bend Gate, South Heights, Jefferson, Cairo, and Niagara; two middle schools: North Middle and South Middle; and one high school: Henderson County High School. Two other schools one for those with mental and or physical deficiency, Riverview, the other an alternative school for those suspended from the other schools in the district, Central Learning Center.[4] There is also one parochial school, Holy Name of Jesus Catholic School.[5]

Henderson is home to one postsecondary institution, Henderson Community College, as well as a satellite campus of Murray State University.[6] In addition, students are also served by University of Evansville and University of Southern Indiana in neighboring Evansville, Indiana.

Museums

Ornithologist, naturalist, and painter John James Audubon spent several years in Henderson in the 1810s. He is honored in the downtown with nine cast-bronze sculptures based on paintings from Audubon's "Birds of America" series, at the John James Audubon State Park and Museum, which houses the world's largest collection of John James Audubon memorabilia and one of the most extensive collections of his work in the world.[7]

Annual Festivals

Each year Henderson hosts a variety of events and festivals. The Henderson Breakfast Lions Club holds the Tri-Fest, a street festival that raises funds for non-profit organizations, in mid-April each year. There is also the free Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival in mid-June and the free Bluegrass in the Park in August.[8][9] The Green River Arts & Crafts Festival is a large event that has been held for more than 30 years on a weekend in early October at John James Audubon State Park and organized by the Green River Area Development District.[7]

Music and Film

Blues legend W.C. Handy spent nearly a decade in Henderson. In his autobiography Father of the Blues, Handy said: "I didn’t write any songs in Henderson, but it was there I realized that experiences I had had, things I had seen and heard could be set down in a kind of music characteristic of my race. There I learned to appreciate the music of my people … then the blues were born, because from that day on, I started thinking about putting my own experience down in that particular kind of music." Each year, Henderson honors Handy by holding one of the largest outdoor free concerts in the USA, the Handy Blues & Barbecue Festival.

A few scenes from the movie A League of Their Own were shot in Henderson, including boarding house scenes that were filmed at a stately home at 612 North Main St. that was once the home of Augustus Owsley Stanley, a governor of Kentucky and U.S. senator. These include the scene in which the character Dottie Hinson (Geena Davis) is reunited with her husband Bob (Bill Pullman), who has been overseas fighting during World War II, and she leaves the women's baseball team.
