Floracliff Nature Sanctuary is a 287-acre nature preserve located in the palisades region of the Kentucky River in southern Fayette County. The preserve is comprised of steep slopes, mixed hardwood forests, Kentucky River bottomlands, swiftly running tributary streams and limestone palisades. Of geological significance is a 61-foot surface deposit of travertine known as Elk Lick Falls.
Built in 1790 on Howard's Creek in Clark County. Attended by Daniel Boone and church where several relatives were baptized. United Baptists formed here.
