Welcome to Kentucky Tennessee Living!

The States of Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Western Maryland are home to some very special people. Believe me we know. My wife and I have traveled from Canada to Mexico. We have roamed across the entire “lower 48” of this great country. In our travels, we have met some wonderful people in every state and from all walks of life. But as the old saying goes, there is no place like home.
Likewise, there are no people like “Mountain Folks” especially those of the Coal producing States of the Appalachian Mountains.
Our mission goal at Kentucky Tennessee Living is to “Boldly Claim the Coal Mining History of Mountain Folks and the Coal Camp towns of Appalachia.” To Highlight the Parks and Events in and around the Coal Camps and to spark an interest in tourism to those areas of the States.
Our greatest desire is to Promote the Miners, Storytellers, Artists, Musicians, Photographers, and Craftsmen who keep our heritage alive while working to build a better tomorrow for the People of the Mountains.
Doctor Marshall Benton Taylor’s eventual arrest was dramatic. On the run and afraid for his life, he tried to make his escape to Florida. But didn’t make it.
The Livestock Barn was built in 1858 by William Bumpass and his son, John. The building was donated in 2012. The Atwill Corn Crib was also donated in 2012.
Donated by Tom Wade of Kenton, Tennessee to the Discovery Park of America in 2012, Wade Cabin is sure to delight with its surprises.
