The Interesting Sights Of Kentucky Captured On A Colourful Vinyl Fridge Magnet
The myriad of attractions in Kentucky is represented on this colourful vinyl fridge magnet rom the catalogues of World Wide Gifts. Although Kentucky is a modern state the pictures capture the feel of its historic rural features. Geographically Kentucky is located in the central south east region of the United States, and historically it was the fifteenth state to join the union. The agricultural heritage of Kentucky began with the early settlers, such as Daniel Boone, and tobacco, hemp and corn were the most popular crops in the area at that time, during the late eighteenth century. The majority of the early settlers in Kentucky were farmers; the era is captured with reminders on this fridge magnet. These settlers were fond of horses, and the affinity for these creatures continues to the present day, represented by the annual running of the Kentucky Derby which began in 1875.

The home of the Kentucky Derby, Churchill Downs, is just one of the famous sights in the area.
