Business Spotlight: Morleys Backyard


Morleys Backyard
234 E Walnut St, Danville, KY

Owners, Meredith and Josh Will moved from Austin, Texas with their two daughters. Josh had attended Centre College and very much admired the community of Danville. Meredith, was born and raised in West Viriginia, so they decided it was time to move back east and found Danville to be the perfect fit for their family. 

Once they were settled in, the opportunity to purchase the iconic Morley’s Wheel Service presented itself.   The location consists of 1.4 acres and a 5,000 sqft building; providing the perfect canvas in creating a space allowing patrons to socialize, enjoy music, festivals, and games.  

"Morley’s Backyard offers a welcoming environment for everyone of all ages.   We aim to provide something for everyone.  Morley’s Backyard has the Kentucky Proud designation due to the fact we offer the region’s largest selection of beers brewed in Kentucky, all of our top shelf liquors are distilled within a 45 mile radius and we look to partner with local vendors.  We have The Farmers Kitchen, from Garrard County, as our food truck in residence.   We host events including:  Winter Farmer’s Market, Crawfish Boil, Food Truck Festival, Sausage Fest – a taste of Germany Bluegrass Style, live music every week, games and NA drinks for the kiddos, Boozy Bookfair and much more.  Whether you are looking to socialize or hide out in the backyard under a shade tree, we have you covered!"
