It seems many people are confused today about a supposed "Bowling Green Massacre" in 2011 that did not occur. Eight Corvettes were swallowed by a sinkhole inside the National Corvette Museum in 2014, but that was hardly a massacre! The incident that did occur in 2011 was the arrest and subsequent conviction of two men on federal charges who at the time resided in Bowling Green. "I understand during a live interview how one can misspeak and we appreciate the clarification," said Bowling Green Mayor Bruce Wilkerson.

Bowling Green is a safe, mid-sized city that is welcoming to all!
