Fondest memory: One of my favorite things about Kentucky, other than its remarkable natural beauty, is its people. Eastern Kentucky occupies the foot hills of the Appalachian Moutains and has a hertiage that is unlike any other!
'Its as old as the hills', a native Eastern Kentuckian may say. The Appalachian culture is full of music, art, liturature and history all its own. This unique hertiage encompasses alot. For instance, bluegrass music, quilting, folk art, the closeness of family here is very special(kin folk), and of course, the down home cooking! Corn bread and fried green tomatoes(mate-urs) are among my favorites!
In order to fully uunderstand this unique culture, one must take into consideration the hardships that many people in these hills have had to endure. The geographic location (mostly in the hills), caused this area to remain isolated, separated and poor economically for the majority of the first half of the 1900's. One would find it very rewarding to speak with an old timer about those days!
However, today, Kentucky lacks in absolutely nothing!(in my oppinion)
