We rode into your town recently on our tandem bicycle on our way from Mobile, Ala., to Owen Sound, Ontario, on the Underground Railroad bike route.
After asking where we could stay downtown near the river, we were directed by the nice folks at your city hall to the L&N Bed and Breakfast. We had dinner at Rookies amid a very friendly crowd of people who were very welcoming and have just finished having breakfast with Mary Elizabeth and Norris Priest.
We just wanted to say what a great place Henderson seems to be and how friendly everyone has been. We are from central New York (think cows, not subways), and this is our second long bike trip. Places like Henderson are what make this such a great country.
In spite of our political and cultural differences, our fellow Americans are wonderful people.
Steve and Carol Mackintosh
