MADISONVILLE, Ky. (10/9/13) – Madisonville residents might be a little surprised to see UFO’s parked on Union Street Thursday night outside the Historical Society of Hopkins County in downtown Madisonville, but it will not come as a surprise to the members as they have invited them to come to the monthly meeting of the organization.
The 7:00 p.m. meeting will feature guest Geraldine Sutton Stith, daughter of Kelly, Kentucky resident and landowner Lucky Sutton’s whose farm was visited in August 1955 by a spaceship and its 15 or so little green men spacemen.
Stith, who has wrote a book about the night and activities surrounding the unexplained event titled Alien Legacy – Based on a True Event, will relay the stories told by her family and what she remembers firsthand as a youngster. Hopkins County police officials were called upon to help investigate the incident at the community just across the southern county line, which now for the past three years has hosted an August Little Green Men Festival to embrace the legacy of the small community.
Anyone is welcome to attend the Historical Society of Hopkins County meeting as there is no charge for the program being presented. The historical society is located at 107 Union Street, just a block from Court Street and the old Courthouse.
