Mill Springs Mill

Located in south-central Kentucky's Wayne County, Monticello lies in both the Mississippian plateau and the Eastern Kentucky coal fields and is known for its natural beauty. Beautiful Lake Cumberland forms much of the northern border of the county, while Tennessee forms the southern border. Many visitors come to Monticello for its Lake Cumberland recreation such as marinas, fishing and boating, but the city also offers championship golf and parks in town, and hiking and biking in its forested hills.

Monticello features attractions for history buffs with its Civil War sites, historic downtown and historic homes such as the Brown-Lanier House, which served as a home, headquarters and hospital before and after the Battle of Mill Springs.
