The region today occupied by the State of Kentucky was populated by Indian tribes - Shawnees, Delawares and Cherokees - when it was explored, from the end of the eighteenth century, by Robert Cavelier da Sala when he descended from Mississippi (1681-1682), then from the middle of the eighteenth century by the Americans Thomas Walker (1750), Christopher Gist (1751) or Daniel Boone (1767).

The defeat of the Indians in 1774, remote from northern Ohio, marked the beginning of colonization: the foundation of Harrodsburg (first permanent colony in 1774) by James Harrod and Boonesboro (1775) by Daniel Boone.

When passing to Kentucky, that first Virginia belonged, it joined the Union on June 1, 1792, as the fifteenth American State. Partly a slave, the State tried to maintain a neutral position when the Secession war broke out. At the same time the homeland of Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, Kentucky officially remained in the Union, supplying soldiers to both camps at the same time, and numerous military operations took place over its territory: battles of Millet Springs and Perryville; invade from the confederates over Paducah.

The exploitation of coal mines, starting in 1870, made it possible to ensure the economic prosperity of the State, favoring in particular the development of metallurgy. Severely affected by the crisis of the 1930s, the regional economy nevertheless renewed with growth after World War II, thanks to the development of mining, industrialization, the diversification of agriculture, and the growth of tourism and service activities.
