Not too far from Paradise, down‘n Western Kentucky where John Prine’s parents were born, Sip & Spin Coffee & Records is located in the historic Roark Undertaking Building at 115 North Main Street in downtown Greenville, Kentucky. They offer a variety of coffee drinks and pastries as well as new and used vinyl records, record players, live music and record sharing events. James Louis Roark was the first undertaker and embalmer in the county and began his operations on the same location in 1879. His business was lost in 1890 due to a fire that destroyed much of that city block. Orien L. Roark was a second-generation undertaker and built his beautiful structure in 1893, making it the third-oldest commercial building in Muhlenberg County. He embalmed and cared for well over a thousand locals at what many called Roark’s, also known as The J. L. Roark Estate. In the old Roark building, the first typewriter was sold in the county as well as the first Victor Talking Machine. As the first music dealer in Muhlenberg County, Orien maintained a large stock of records. He also sold musical instruments, home furnishings, did job printing and published the local newspaper, "The Record” from 1899 until the early 1920’s. Sip & Spin Coffee & Records strives to provide the atmosphere of that era with an ever-changing collection of items of local history on display including Orien Roark’s personal Victrola, pieces used in his undertaking business as well as music related pieces from the musical past of Muhlenberg County. Displays are being added currently for Merle Travis and The Everly Brothers. Other items coming soon are displays for Dave Rich and Guy Drake. People are visiting from all over the region for the great taste of Sip & Spin coffee, a nice selection of vinyl records, live music and history events, the relaxing vibe of the Roark building with local music always playing and the great times offered by the staff and owners. Drop by and see what all the excitement is about at Sip & Spin Coffee & Records…
