About the neighbourhood
The town is one of the older historical towns in Kentucky, and has the only community center in the county. There is a boat launch 2 blocks away on the Ohio river and room in the backyard to park it. Feel free to take the kiddo's to the playground. Take a quiet stroll and enjoy the scenery. There is one store/restaurant in town and details are available on arrival. The food is pretty good too!
