The central Kentucky town of Hodgenville has banned smoking in most businesses.

Hodgenville’s City Council voted 5-1 in favor of a ban on smoking inside and with 25-feet of an entrance of most buildings. This covers both public spaces as well as privately-owned businesses. Exceptions have been made to private residences, hotels, tobacco stores and private clubs.

The ban also covers outdoor arenas and stadiums though not public parks.

Hodgenville is located in the center of the state in LaRue County, Kentucky. It has a population of around 3,000 and is best known for being the area where Abraham Lincoln was born, though he was technically born in an unincorporated area around Hodgenville.
