Kentucky by Josiah

Hi everybody. Here are some facts I learned about Kentucky.

Kentucky is home to of the longest caves in the world. Mammoth caves and Fisher Ridge Cave System. (Hopefully, we'll get to visit one or both of these and show you some pictures!)

The capital of Kentucky is Frankfort.

The largest city is Louisville. Below is a picture of downtown Louisville.



The total area of Kentucky is 40,409 square miles.

The highest point is Black Mountain that stands 4,145 feet high.

It is the 36th largest state and is about as big as Iceland or half of Minnesota.

US President Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky.

The Kentucky Derby is the oldest organized sporting event in the US.

I really like Kentucky. My favorite thing so far has been the basketball. I've realized that the team that I'm on is really on focusing on learning more about Jesus. It's called Upward.

I also like the Kentucky School for the Deaf basketball team.


This is a pictures of Jacobs Hall on the campus of KSD. RJ, is this named after you?


See you later from Kentucky
