The St. Mary's Episcopal Church is a quaint little historic church built in 1890. Spread over an area of 0.5 acre (0.20 hectare), it displays the Gothic Revival style of architecture. Still a functional church, it became a part of the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
Cumberland Gap National Historical Park was established on June 11, 1940. It was established to preserve the natural and historic beauty of this place. The park lies in parts of Bell and Harlan counties in Kentucky and covers 20,508 acres (8299 hectares) of land. It is open throughout the year except on Christmas, and has a bookstore and gift shops as well.
The Wilderness Road is a famous path cut by Daniel Boone in 1775 that stretches over 200 miles from Virginia to Tennessee to Kentucky and which served as the primary route for early American settlers for fifty years. Although the original road no longer exists, visitors can trace the route along modern highways and visit the beautiful Wilderness Road State Park and many of the historic towns that lie along the way.
The Pine Mountain State Resort Park enjoys the distinction of being Kentucky's very first state park in 1924. Definitely one of the nicest, this one spreads over acres of undulating greens, nestled amid craggy mountains and hills. A number of charming cottages and lodges with amenities for cooking, drinking and showering are available, whereas conferences and events can also be held here. A good idea would be to enjoy a romantic meal at the on-site restaurant which offers diners sweeping views of the surrounding landscape.
