1769年時,布恩(Daniel Boone)及其他的拓荒者曾定居在別號「青草之州」(Bluegrass State)的肯塔基,這個名字源自於一個易洛魁族印地安字:Ken-tah-ten,或「明日之地」(land of tomorrow)。肯塔基州於1792年加入聯邦,成為美國第15州,是第一個位於阿帕拉契山脈西部的州。現在,只要提起肯塔基州,人們就會聯想到煤礦、由馬耕耘的農田及賽事;美國境內最著名的年度賽馬:肯塔基大賽馬(Kentucky Derby)就在路易斯維爾舉行。肯塔基州的州花是紫莞花,州鳥是北美紅雀,而它的首府是法蘭克福(Frankfort)


Daniel Boone and other frontiersmen settled in Kentucky, the "Bluegrass State," in 1769. Its name comes from the Iroquois Indian word "Ken-tah-ten," or "land of tomorrow." Admitted into the Union in 1792, Kentucky is the 15th state and the first state west of the Appalachian Mountains. Today, Kentucky is associated with coal mines and horse farms and racing. America's most prestigious horse race, the Kentucky Derby, is held in Louisville annually. The state flower is the goldenrod, the cardinal is the state bird and Frankfort is the capital.
