Travel Tips for Frankfort

Tunneling Through

by grandmaR

While I was occupied in the History Center, Bob walked around Lexington. He took my camera (which I left in the trunk of the car) and took a photo of the hand dug railroad tunnel which was next to the station, and also the sign about it. I had already taken a photo of the train station and the sign for that Two of the signs pictures are transcribed below.

Early Tunnel in Kentucky

Early transportation tunnel in Kentucky. It was hand bored by Lexington and Frankfort Railroad in 1849. First passenger train went through on February 24, 1850. Replace incline. built 1835 just east of here, previously used by railroad to enter Frankfort. Incline built by Lexington & Ohio, the first railroad in Kentucky.

Frankfort Union Station

Built by Louisville & Nashville RR 1908, to replace depot located here by Lexington & Frankfort R.R. in 1850s. Present station was used by Chesapeake & Ohio, Louisville & Nashville, Frankfort & Cincinnati,and Kentucky Highlands. The last scheduled passenger train was C&O George Washington, April 30, 1971.

You should go over to Lock #4...

by captjohn

You should go over to Lock #4 , ask for direction's. The Ky river goes around Frankfort, ask the lock Keeper, as the time's the Tow Boat's that lock up and down will be there. This is something to see, as these lock's are very old and will only lock one barge or boat at a time. I worked on these boat's for a few year's, as a deck-hand and a Captain, so to see them lock stepping back in time. The lock's on the Ohio river, are up to date and very large. The Ky river lock's, are 155 feet long and 38 feet wide. The barge's that lock are 150 feet long and 35 feet wide. So a very tight fit.

See the Kentucky State...

by charlie8

See the Kentucky State Capitol............

Frankfort, Kentucky, USA..........

Nickname: Bluegrass State.........

Statehood: June, 1792 (15th State) The Kentucky flag was adopted in 1918 and consists of the seal of the Commonwealth. The two people on the seal, a pioneer and a statesman, represent all the people. They are acting out the meaning of Kentucky's motto: 'United We Stand; Divided We Fall'. Encircled by a wreath of goldenrod, on a field of navy blue. The first Kentucky flags were designed and made by Jessie Cox, a Frankfort art teacher.

Juniper Hills Course

by davecallahan

Public golf course in the capital of Kentucky; owned and operated by the county/city.
The establishment will celebrate 50 years of service in 2008.

$25 gets a cart and 18 holes (5700 yards short, 6400 yards long).

There are no practice areas on this course and food is available off-site.

There is a dress code of shirt and shorts or long pants.

The course itself is made for mountain goats (cart is a must). Elevated tees and greens with sinuous fairways. Trees block line-of-sight on the doglegs and bunkers guard most greens.
The signature hole is a thread-the-needle type of fairway where the trees block your view of the lake you must then shoot over on the approach shot to the green. Be sure you have extra balls with you.
The greens are relatively flat and true; bent grass that is kept short and tuns fast in summer heat. The fairways are bluegrass which tends to slow the roll of the ball.
