Hickman County Historical & Genealogical Society

The Hickman County Historical & Genealogical located at 107 S. Washington Street in Clinton, Kentucky houses 10,000 death notices, 2000 local history books, newspapers dating back to 1899.

The Society is a favorite stop for genealogical researchers because Hickman County was the first county of the Kentucky portion of the Jackson Purchase. It was from Hickman that all other counties - Ballard, Carlisle, Calloway, Fulton, Graves, and McCracken were carved.

The Society publishes books on the history of local businesses, churches, cemeteries which are available for purchase. A newsletter goes out quarterly. The Society started a Young Historians group for middle schoolers to involve them in researching and presenting their findings to the public.
