Muldraugh Hill is a Central Kentucky Landmark which geographically separates the Bluegrass Region from the Mississippi Plateau which includes the Great Wooded South here in South Central Kentucky.

Muldraugh Hill in reality includes the Floyd Knobs region of Southern Indiana and stretches Southward to near Elizabethtown and then meanders as a true escarpment Eastward toward Crab Orchard in Lincoln County.



Another landmark worth visiting on a day trip in this area of majestic beauty, can be seen off in the distance setting atop it's mini-knob with its small steeple brightly lit by the mid-afternoon sun.

Named after the Patron Saint of workers, it is simply called Saint Joe. Although it pales in comparison to most of the majestic brick and stone structures of other parishes in the area, it seems to softly speak peace and comfort to all who stop and ponder its serene simplicity.

Kentucky Color: Rolling Fork from Muldraugh Hill



2018-02-20 - From Scotts Ridge Overlook, between Campbellsville and Raywick, KY - Photo by Billy Joe Fudge, President, Homeplace on Green River.
There's quite a view of the Rolling Fork River nestled against the Muldraugh Hill Escarpment, from this vantage point. A landmark worth visiting on a day trip in this area of majestic beauty, can be seen off in the distance setting atop its mini-knob with its small steeple brightly lit by the mid-afternoon sun. Named after the Patron Saint of workers, it is simply called Saint Joe. Although it pales in comparison to most of the majestic brick and stone structures of other parishes in the area, it seems to softly speak peace and comfort to all who stop and ponder its serene simplicity. St. Joe is in a direct line across that marshy pond, on the left side of the photo, across the Rolling Fork and just short of the base of the gun barrel ridge protruding Northward. You can see the white church with it's black roof and short-fat steeple and community center on its North side. It is not the house on the right side of the pic with black roof and silo nearby. - Billy Joe Fudge
