Historical buildings renovation and preservation

Copperhead takes pride in being part of the story behind a historic village. Paint Lick is a history rich area that we are passionate about and have put our efforts into the preservation of the several buildings in downtown that we operate out of. We helped establish the downtown area as a recognized National Historic Village and have renovated several buildings that were on the brink of being lost forever. Our effort has not gone unnoticed and was awarded a preservation award on October 8th 2016.

Historic sign of Paint Lick, Kentucky

Copperhead heard the outcry from the community for a need for a sign along the newly built by-pass. Thus, we donated time and materials and worked close with the Garrard County Fiscal Court to develop a design and line up the construction with historic stone and solar light. In the end, we have an impressive welcoming sign for our community that everyone can be proud of.


We are proud to participate in our community VillageFest every year. The VillageFest allows us to speak with the community and celebrate our history. It is also a platform for the community to raise funding for the transformation of the Historic Village of Paint Lick.

Paint Lick Sanitation Project

In our effort to help our community be more environmental responsible we supported Garrard County Fiscal Court in establishing the Garrard County Sanitation District (GCSD). The first project completed by the GCSD was a sanitation package plant for the downtown business district of Paint lick. This project helped eliminated point-source pollution, failing septic systems, and provided opportunity for economic growth.

Cycling Advocate

We believe in staying healthy and having a deep connection with our community, both our neighbors and those visiting and passing through. Paint Lick is located on the 10th section of the Transamerica bike trail that crosses the United States. We have supported the Garrard County Fiscal Courts ability to install “Share the Road” cyclists signs to bring awareness to the community of the two wheeled tourists cycling across our county. We provide a water stop in Paint Lick with a small bicycle repair shop, hot showers, camping sites, and other lodging. In addition, Copperhead is a bike friendly business and a member of the League of American Bicyclists that support the power in bicycling by our employees and within our community.
