Residents share childhood memories of Henderson

Residents share childhood memories of Henderson

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) - The art of storytelling has been around a very long time.

This week in Henderson, you can sit in the public library on Main Street and hear from those who have great memories to share.

"The Growing Up in Henderson" series is happening this week, where lifelong Henderson County residents share photographs, memories, and stories from "the good ole days."

On Monday, we heard from Charlie Crabtree, a WWII veteran and one of the first graduates of Henderson City High School.  He worked in broadcasting along side Mike Blake and Ann Komis.

"The history of Henderson has so much involved with it, it's older than Evansville actually," said Crabtree.  "The town began as Red Banks. Then it was named after Colonel Richard Henderson who was the head of the Transylvania company in Henderson."

The "Growing Up in Henderson" series will feature Joann Roberts on Tuesday and Jim Bates on Thursday. The series is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
