Located in the hills of Eastern Kentucky, where the Kentucky River is born, lies the little town of Beattyville, Kentucky. Beattyville has a small town feel, but there is much more to see and discover about this quaint community! The Three Forks Historical Center is a museum that tells about the history of Beattyville and Lee County. There are many exhibits and artifacts that tell about the people and life of this wonderful community!

I wish I could have stayed longer just so I could have explored a bit more. The items on display are fascinating. Only wish that the collections were displayed differently. Even if they could rotate some so that you didn't feel like you may have missed something. But got to have a new experience the next time you stopped by.

Deidre Brandenburg is a great tourism director. She showed us the wonderful assets that are cherished in Lee County. I had an amazing time browsing the museum in Beattyville. Lee County played a very important role in America's history and the shaping of the Appalachian region. This is reflected through the various relished and donated artifacts. I recommend stopping by and learning some interesting history.
