Castles and Rock Walls Are Everywhere






Did you know Kentucky is on a limestone base, similar to Ireland?
The rock walls (fences) in Kentucky were built by Irish immigrants.

I did not know that. So, I bet you were feeling right at home on your adventures lately.

What an interesting connection - I didn't know that either!

No, I didn't know they were built by Irish immigrants. If memory serves, there are some beautiful examples between Danville and Lancaster, and also toward Stanford. Gorgeous scenery!

I did not know that! They must have been very happy to find it there.

Love rock walls. When we lived in Kansas there were many limestone fences and walls. I want to bring them west with me, ha!
