About Kentucky

Officially named the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It is a state in the Southeastern region of the country, which borders Indiana, Illinois, and Ohio to the north; Virginia and West Virginia to the east; Missouri to the west; and Tennessee to the south. The state’s capital is Frankfort, and its two largest cities are Lexington and Louisville.

Principal crops include soybeans, hay, corn, and tobacco. Kentucky is also a producer of cattle, horses, mules, and poultry. Almost one of each five Kentucky workers is employed in farm-related jobs.

Kentucky holds vast coal reserves, which places the state among the country’s leading coal producers. However, most of the mining in the state is used primarily for energy generation.
