Welcome to Beaver Dam, Kentucky
As you may know FOLK is based in Beaver Dam, Kentucky. The magazine is produced in Lexington, but the mailing, banking, and business all takes place in the small western Kentucky community. This is also where the FOLK store is labeled. You may be asking where the heck is Beaver Dam. The town is located in the dead middle of western Kentucky. It is between the mid-sized towns of Owensboro and Bowling Green. 1.5 hours away from Evansville Indiana, Nashville Tennessee, and Louisville. It is two hours from Lexington. We have a population of 3,500. The area is largely ag based and small communities pop up along the rural highways. The FOLK store is located in the small downtown of Beaver Dam. A hand-full of buildings line Main Street. Along with FOLK the downtown has several antique stores that are filled with finds at very affordable prices. If you plan to visit the FOLK store you must also visit these antique stores.. along with our other fine shops in town. I thought today would be a good day to share some of my favorite photos from Beaver Dam and the surrounding area.
Our drive in still plays movies every summer.
When in town Barnes Antiques is a must stop.
