Kentucky Life visits BB Riverboats of Northern Kentucky, a historical marker at the University of the Cumberlands, rare white thoroughbreds in Marshall County, and the U.S. Bullion Depository at Ft. Knox.
One of Northern Kentucky’s most unique dining experiences is out on the water of the Ohio River. BB Riverboats has been in operation for more than 30 years, offering food and entertainment for patrons of all ages.
History at the University of the Cumberlands
Roeburn Hall on the campus of the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg is the location of one of five historical markers on the campus. Built in 1888, Roeburn was the first building of what was then called the Williamsburg Institute, a school established to provide affordable Christian education to students from Kentucky’s mountain region.
White Thoroughbreds of Megson Farms
The genetics of Thoroughbred horses have been carefully curated and documented for centuries. That’s why geneticists are still somewhat baffled by the appearance of white horses in the breed, an unusual phenomenon that The Jockey Club first documented in the 1960s.
The Gold Reserves of Fort Knox
Fort Knox, established in 1918, is an active military base located between Louisville and Elizabethtown, but most people know it for its role as the U.S. Bullion Depository. No visitors are allowed inside, and the exact quantity of gold held at Fort Knox is undisclosed.
