Kentucky Place Names

" From the wealth of place names in Kentucky, Rennick has selected those of some 2,000 communities and post offices. These places are usually the largest, the best known, or the most important as well as those with unusual or inherently interesting names. Including perhaps one-fourth of all such places known in the state, the names were chosen as a representative sample among Kentucky's counties and sections. Kentucky Place Names offers a fascinating mosaic of information on families, events, politics, and local lore in the state. It will interest all Kentuckians as well as the growing number of scholars of American place names.

Reviews

"A bonanza for historians, linguists, geographers, folklorists, genealogists and people who are simply nuts about names."—Appalachian Newsletter

"Good reading for anyone interested in Kentucky history and folklore, and it whets the appetite for more."—Louisville Courier-Journal
