The Invention That Put This Small Town In Kentucky On The Map

Corbin, Kentucky, has long been known for its unrivaled outdoor recreation. It’s the home of the “Niagara of the South” and, more broadly, Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. But those natural wonders aren’t the only feather in Corbin’s cap; Corbin is home to the famous Colonel Harland Sanders… and the birthplace of Kentucky Fried Chicken! While the Bluegrass has long been known for its amazing Southern cuisine, the Colonel’s Kentucky Fried Chicken truly put Corbin on the map; and today, the Colonel’s restaurants can be found all over the continent.

Did you know that Corbin, Kentucky, was the home of Kentucky Fried Chicken? What a cool claim to fame!

You know, Kentucky has made some pretty incredible contributions to the world. The Happy Birthday song, traffic lights, Post-It Notes… the list goes on!
