Overview

Birthplace of Loretta Lynn. When Loretta Lynn belted, "Well, I was born a coal miner's daughter/In a cabin on a hill in Butcher Hollow," it not only skyrockted "The Queen of Country Music" to additional fame outside the realm of country music fans, but it merited her the everlasting respect of every person connected directly or indirectly with coal mining or mountain life. Visit Butcher Hollow, located in scenic Johnson County. Loretta's brother, Herman Webb, is curator of the Butcher Hollow Home.

Great information about Loretta. You stop at the general store and ask for Herman. If you go to Paintsville visitor center for directions. The gentleman giving tours has lots of info to share.

You get to see the lower floor of the Webb home. The upstairs is closed to the public. There are several pieces and photos of the Webb family. Also on your way out of Butcher's Holler take note of the big single room yellow schoolhouse...More

We went on a Sunday afternoon. I would think it would be subject to when the store is open. It's hard to get a hold of someone outside the store even though Herman ( Loretta's brother) lives just down the road. The store... More

You can drive right up to the house but some steps to get up on the porch. I think less than 5. The house is one level and small. You have to stop at Webb's store for a tour of the house and its all one level.
