People use their traditions, art forms and experiences to tell a distinct story. Set these stories among specific places and historical events, and you have a region's cultural heritage. Kentucky's cultural tapestry is woven of many threads, including those of Native Americans, African-Americans, explorers and pioneers in blood (the conflicting loyalties during the Civil War); sweat (the labors of hardy pioneers who crossed the Appalachians to carve out a new life) and tears (the travails of the state's Native American and enslaved African American populations).
It has often been said that the past is a window to the future. Kentucky's rich cultural roots continue to flourish as Kentuckians embrace their multicultural heritage, and continue adding to their story. Come discover what makes the Kentucky experience so rich.

Myrtledene is located in the heart of what has been called the Kentucky Holy Land, the three-county area (Marion, Washington, and Nelson) which was the destination of so many Maryland Catholic families seeking a home in the wilderness. Beautiful and historic churches, cathedrals, monasteries, and convents abound. We have hosted many geneologists seeking answers to the questions of their own origins.
