Cadiz - a city in the county of Trigg, Kentucky. It is the county seat and is located close to the Land Between the Lakes, it also was base of Union and Confederate operations in the American Civil War.  Buildings from the late 1800's and early 1900's still dominate the city. Located on the Southwestern edge of the Pennyroyal region.  Bound by Tennessee state line to the South and by Kentucky lake to the West.  The county was named for Col. Stephen Trigg, a native of Virginia who was a soldier who came to Kentucky in 1779 as a land commissioner and after he finished his work, he moved on and was fatally wounded in the Battle of Blue Licks - August 19, 1782.

  There is a book Called The History of Trigg County by William Perrin in 1884, but does not say how Cadiz got it's name.  

Cadiz Christian Church was founded on August 1 1842 by 24 people

Nice shops in town

Victorian homes

decorated pigs - I understand that there is a ham festival the second week in October
To raise awareness of it , businesses and homeowners buy the pigs and decorate for the sidewalks
