    Yep, this is a place we will visit though Boone had nothing to do with the genesis of the setlement. Simon Kent was first and brought Boone in after the settlement was established. still, a great site though and we will visit it.

    Wow! Covered bridges, wonderful state parks, history and lots to see and do. Yes, Kentucky is a great state to visit. And I always get a kick out of that "Florence Y'all" water tower whenever we pass it on the way south. Fun pages Stephen.

    Still marvelous 2nd time around. Since I've worked on KY for a week, I needed another perspective...yours is 5-star all the way. I thought I'd seen all of KY, but from your work, I see I sure have not. Above superior is your ranking!

    Very interesting page! I always wanted to visit the southern US; looks like Kentucky is a good place to start. Love the story about the Florence Mall (Y'all) ~ Helen

    This is good to know. I remember seeing this monument. Some people cry over a ticket they got in KY. This will show them why my son is hard at work..Thanks for sharing. :) Benita or K.S.P.TroopersMom.

    Thanks for the birthday wishes yesterday AND the wonderful comment you left on my Hershey page. It needs A LOT of work--I just started it! KY is an underrated state, I explored it quite a bit driving to & from school in Alabama:) Great page!
