Frankfort, the capital of Kentucky, gets its name from what early settlers called the area, Frank’s Ford, after Stephen Frank was killed by Indians around 1780. When Kentucky became a state in 1792, Frankfort was chosen as the capital. Construction of the Capitol building in use today was completed in 1909. As the capital of Kentucky, the city is home to many historical sites and events. Daniel Boone and numerous Kentucky Governors are buried in the Frankfort Cemetery. The Old Governor’s Mansion, built in 1797, is open for tours and the new Governor’s Mansion, built in 1914, houses the Governor’s family and hosts many events. Frankfort has long been known for its distilleries. Buffalo Trace Distillery is known as the oldest continuously operating distillery in the United States, with distilling on site as early as 1775. Brands such as Van Winkle, Blanton’s and George T. Stagg are distilled at the site today.
