Dr Thomas Walker, surveyor to Kentucky

Dr Thomas Walker, surveyor to Kentucky


A trip through Southeast Kentucky brought me to the place where Thomas Walker set foot with his team of five men who built the first house in Kentucky while surveying the Kentucky land.

My visit to the Dr Thomas Walker Historic Site in Kentucky

  • Barbourville, KY, USA

Leaving Nicholasville, Kentucky we decided to go the old highway that our ancestors took when going from East Tennessee to Southeast Kentucky. A great journey for reminiscing history when Daniel Boone, Thomas Walker, Daniel Ellis and others were scouting the land over the mountain. Cumberland Gap named by Thomas Walker, is no longer the winding road up the mountain. A new four lane highway replaces the great Cumberland Gap road.
