Welcome To Our City

Mayor Carol Graham Lewis Joseph

My name is Carol Lewis Joseph. I am originally from Wolfe County.  My parents are Andy and Mary Graham.  I first came to Hyden when I met my husband.  Subsequently, I went back to college and majored in education and taught in Leslie County for fifteen years.  I then taught for twelve years in Wolfe County until I retired.  I currently reside in Hyden with my husband, William Peyton Joseph.  We have two daughters, Danielle and Fran Lewis, and one granddaughter, Micah Maggard.  I am proud to call Hyden my home and I am looking forward to serving the people of Hyden.

As Mayor of the City of Hyden, Kentucky, I would like to extend my welcome to the official website of the City of Hyden. I would like to say welcome to “The Heart of the Mountains“. 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.
