    In Frankfort Cemetery lies one of America's most noted explorers, Daniel Boone. Although not the first to explore or settle in Kentucky, he is nevertheless associated with early westward expansion in the young United States. The grave of Boone and his wife Rebecca is situated on a spectacular overlook of the river, capitol and hilly countryside.

    According to the sign outfront, the house came to be when Frankfort resident and Presbyterian minister Jesse Zeigler met Wright on a ship. This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Kentucky, and its current owners have lovingly restored this 1910 Prairie Style abode.

    When traveling to Frankfort from Lexington take US 60 through Versailles, or old Frankfort Pike. You will pass some of the most beautiful horse farms in the world. See my Versailles page for photos of typical farm. WARNING, most drivers tend to drive faster than the 55 mile hour posted speed limit on US 60, but the road is heavily patroled and is something of a speedtrap.

    Frankfort Cemetery is located on the mountain across the river from Frankfort and offers great views of the city. It is worth going up there just to see the beauty. I highly recommend it.
