Welcome to Our City


As Mayor of the City of Hyden, Kentucky, I would like to extend my welcome to the official website of the City of Hyden, my home town. I would like to say welcome to “The Heart of the Mountains“ where I have been mayor since January 1, 2007. My staff and I open our hearts to everyone who wishes to visit our city. We strive to make our town as pleasant for you as it has been for all of us. I would like to thank the residents of the city for allowing me to serve as Mayor of Hyden.

Mayor Lonnie Hendrix
