Cheeseburgers Were First Served in Kentucky and Other Fun Facts
I am not a fan of cheeseburgers. I just don't care for cheese on a burger. I much prefer condiments and I can't stand condiments mixing with cheese.
HOWEVER, I am a huge fan of fun facts about Kentucky and very enjoyed learning that cheeseburgers were first served in the Commonwealth.
It was 1934 and it happened in Louisville at a place called Kaolin's.
Now, this factoid didn't come to me in a dream. It came to me at 50States.com's Kentucky page.
It's a large list of Kentucky facts you may or may not know. I didn't know about the cheeseburgers or that the Boy Scouts Scouting Museum is in Murray.
I did know they make Corvettes in Bowling Green, of course. Duh.
But I didn't know that Kentucky can lay claim to the nation's largest fireworks display or the nation's first commercial oil well.
There are also fun and funny facts about Christian County, Bourbon County, and Barren County.
I love the one about Barren County.
Enjoy your trip through some little (or not so little) known facts about the Bluegrass State.
Maybe you'll think about this list the next time you sing "Happy Birthday."
(If you've already seen the list, you get me.)
