Part Fire Department, Part Museum. You’ve Got To See The Fire Department in Paris, KY.

Paris, KY is a small town with a huge heart. Its location is nearly perfect if you want to take in the beauty of Central Kentucky. You can be in Lexington, Georgetown, Winchester, Mt. Sterling or Cynthiana within 20 minutes. Bourbon County is home to some the most beautiful scenery you will ever experience.

This Museum In Kentucky Is A Must See!

Renfro Valley, KentuckySoutheastern Kentucky has a rich musical history. The 144 mile stretch of Route 23 has such a storied history of producing musicians it is actually dubbed the Country Music Highway. So it should come as no surprise that the Kentucky Music Hall Of Fame was placed near the Renfro Valley Entertainment Complex in Mount Vernon. Which sits just off of Interstate 75 in Rockcastle County, roughly twenty miles north of London. (more…)
