Kentucky Encyclopedia Web Edition

The Kentucky Encyclopedia was commissioned to mark the bicentennial of statehood in 1992. Its 2,000-plus entries are the work of more than five hundred writers. Their subjects reflect all areas of the commonwealth, and this standard reference tool pulls together facts about the people, places, things, and events of the Bluegrass State. The web edition of The Kentucky Encyclopedia contains all the entries in the print edition enhanced for the online environment.  It was created and is maintained by the University Press of Kentucky and Morehead State University.
