CAVE CITY — The Cave City Nursing Home will celebrate 30 years of serving the community with a community cookout from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Friday, Oct. 26.
“Over three decades ago, concerned community leaders broke new ground for a nursring home in Cave City,” organizers said. “October, 24, 1988, CCNH welcomed its very first resident. Since then, Cave City Nursring Home has had the honor of serving over 1,400 individuals in the community and surrounding area.”
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, Lacy, 34, spent most of her life in the hills of Lawrence County. Today, she lives in Cave City, the home of “World’s Sweetest Watermelons,” in what’s known as the Prince Matlock house. Its former owner helped create what’s known as the Cave Courts where the city’s cave lies above the Crystal River. He fashioned his home out of the same rocks and materials that are found among the cave’s property, and she feels blessed to now be its caretaker for many more years to come.
