FALL in Henderson County

Published by Henderson County EDC - 8 October 2014

Fall is in the air. As the crops are harvested and mother nature brings forth beautiful colors, now is a great time to tour Henderson County.  Explore the scenic drive for mile after mile. On Friday nights, stand under the lights to cheer on our West Central Heat football team. Make it a family tradition to stop at Rogers Pumpkin Farm, Slagels Produce, and Weir Fruit Angus Farm to prepare for Fall and Halloween.  For those who dare do not forget to visit the Haunted Forest!
