Mountain Workshops Profile Owensboro Legend Hal Miller [VIDEO]

Thirty-seven years ago, a group of Western Kentucky University students and faculty traveled to western Kentucy and Tennessee for a photo essay project on the last one-room schoolhouses in those regions.

And Mountain Workshops was born. Since that 1976 trip, Mountain Workshops have been documenting the communities of Kentucky and northern Tennessee and the lives of those who inhabit them.

Now Mountain Workshops have made it to Owensboro where, last week, they profiled a local legend–Hal Miller.

Hal is a fixture in the community and a walking, talking history book of the area. His legendary restaurant doubles as a museum, if you ask me. I can’t ever leave without taking a look around–this, despite the fact that I’ve seen it all hundreds of times before.

I hope you enjoy “Roses in December,” a great tribute to Hal Miller by Shelby Mack.
