Here Are The Oldest Photos Ever Taken In Kentucky And They’re Incredible

Kentucky’s history is interesting and intriguing, and important to learn from and preserve. While it’s nearly impossible to know which photos were the first ever taken of our state, we were able to round up several, all of which are over 100 years old. It’s exciting to be able to look back on our state and see images from the past that show how our state became what it is today.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

It’s interesting to think that in another 100 years, future generations will look back on photos of us and how we lived our lives in Kentucky. What are your thoughts on these photos? What is your favorite piece of Kentucky history? Share with us in the comments!
