Overview


Nestled in a natural bowl created by surrounding foothills, Bowling Green has become the commercial, educational, medical, and retail hub of south-central Kentucky. Although Bowling Green claims itself as the home of such American icons as Duncan Hines and the Corvette, it is anything but a stereotypical place. As the state's fifth-largest city, Bowling Green boasts the second-largest number of restaurants per capita in the country, the Commonwealth's fastest-growing university, and the most ethnically diverse population in the state. Since its founding in 1798, Bowling Green has continued to accumulate a fascinating history and cultivate a promising future.

Images of America: Bowling Green highlights and celebrates this dynamic city's development from an agricultural trading center to a city of culture, education, and prosperity. Featuring images of Lost River Cave, Beech Bend, Fountain Square Park, and the 1937 flood, readers are taken on a journey through Bowling Green's history and its beloved landmarks and citizens.
