There Is Only One Maysville

All big cities look the same with all the big chain restaurants and stores. But if you want to experience how real American people work, live and play, then Maysville, Kentucky is your destination. There is only one Maysville, Kentucky with unique shops and a history that dates back to the beginning of our country. Imagine travelling in time from 1776 to present, getting a glimpse of ages passed in architecture, early history (including stops on the Underground Railroad), and the stories of influential and famous people who hail from this special spot.

Who are these famous people? Well how about a little taste of George Clooney and his famous Aunt Rosemary Clooney! Let us help you conjure up adventures of the famous pioneers, including Daniel Boone and Simon Kenton. We can tell you an interesting story about Harriet Beecher Stowe and her connection to a prominent family who once lived here.

In September you can step back in time to a pioneer event known as The Simon Kenton Festival consisting of the Kenton Ken, and the Piqua Shawnee Tribe.
