Historical Society News | New Liberty home to Owen County’s first Catholic church

-A A +A
By Bonnie Strassell

A small informative book by Rev. Albert Ruschman, “The Church in Tobaccoland: History of the Catholic Church In Owen County, Kentucky,” describes in detail the role of the Catholic church in the area.
