These 12 Candid Photos Show What Life Was Like In Kentucky In The 1920s

The Bluegrass State has a fascinating history. A Southern state through and through, there are certain things that are an inextricable part of Kentucky culture: horses, bourbon, fried chicken, and scenic splendor as deep and grand as our superlative caverns and waterfalls. While the world has changed so much in the last 100 years, these places and values form the fabric of Kentucky, and remain as strong as ever today. We’re feeling nostalgic, so we thought we’d share some photos of Kentucky from the 1920s that capture the spirit of that pivotal decade.

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:
