If You’re Going to be a BG Dweller and a Respected Kentuckian You Should Know:
–Warren County was named in honor of Dr. Joseph Warren, a hero of the Battle of Bunker Hill.
–Kentucky is the state where both Abraham Lincoln, President of the Union, and Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederacy, were born. They were born less than one hundred miles and one year apart.
–There used to be a log courthouse and jail where Fountain Square Park is now.
–Mammoth Cave is the world’s longest cave and was first promoted in 1816, making it the second oldest tourist attraction in the United States. Niagara Falls, New York is first.
–At the first county commissioners meeting in early 1798, the pioneers decided that the new town would be “called and known by the name of Bolin Green.” This name was after the Bowling Green Square in New York City, where patriots had pulled down a statue of King George III and used the lead to make bullets during the American Revolution.
–The radio was invented by a Kentuckian named Nathan B. Stubblefield of Murray in 1892. It was three years before Marconi made his claim to the invention.
–Just over 95 percent of all bourbon is distilled, aged and bottled right here in Kentucky.
Endless posts refuting the rather ridiculous notion that Bowling Green is “Boring” Green. Ask us why we love it here…
