Barbourville is home to Union College, The Daniel Boone Festival and the site where the first log cabin was built by a settler to Kentucky. 

This ever expanding southeastern Kentucky town is the site of the state's first Civil War Skirmish.  This famous 1861 battle is reenacted during the Living History Days Festival which takes place every September.

A quaint and quiet town rich in history and modern flair to appeal to college students and families, Barbourville is a place where visitors are made to feel at home with local shopping and dining surrounded by a breathtaking landscape.
