Mayfield Graves County YMCA History
In 1844, George Williams invited a group of friends to meet regularly as a Christian alternative to the hardships and temptations associated with the Industrial Revolution. Soon, these gatherings evolved into a “missional community” addressing the basic needs of the human condition – spirit, mind and body. Little did Williams know his new terminology would serve as the centerpiece for the vision and purpose of the Young Men’s Christian Association.
Mayfield and Graves County were fortunate enough to have community members that were dedicated to the health and wellness of our area residents and thus begin the process of getting the YMCA to us. Though we appreciate our roots of beginning in the “blue building,” in 1999 the Y moved to its current location at 1545 Cuba Road in Mayfield. We have seen many changes in our building, our members, our equipment and programs but we are very fortunate that our little Y has stayed independent and here for everyone that needs us in Western Kentucky!
We have a great selection of cardio equipment, free weights and weight machines. We also have cardio classes offered Monday through Sunday throughout the day and evening and you can also take a dip in our heated indoor pool!
