"Soon after, I returned home to my family, with a determination to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which I esteemed a second paradise, at the risk of my life and fortune.

Butler-Turpin Home Carroll County

Located in the General Butler State Park in Carrolton. Home built 1859!

In Carrollton the Kentucky River, which begins in Beattyville, meets the Ohio. The Kentucky River is a tributary of the Ohio River, 260 miles (418 km) long,[1] in the U.S. state of Kentucky. The river and its tributaries drain much of the central region of the state, with its upper course passing through the coal-mining regions of the Cumberland Mountains, and its lower course passing through the Bluegrass region in the north central part of the state. Its watershed encompasses about 7,000 square miles (18,000 km2). It supplies drinking water to about one-sixth of the population of the state.
