The Little-Known Church Hiding In Kentucky That Is An Absolute Work Of Art
Kentucky is filled with little-known places that often are meaningful to those nearby and come with an interesting history. In Eastern Kentucky, in the heart of Appalachia, Pine Mountain Settlement School is a beautiful property that has been a large part of the community for more than 100 years, but is somewhat unknown to the entire state of Kentucky. And within this school sits an incredible little chapel that is an absolute work of art. Head to Bledsoe, Kentucky with us and visit a charming church, hiding in the mountains of the Bluegrass State.
