Greenup, Kentucky

About

Established in 1803 and named for the third Governor of Kentucky, Greenup is a town ever-moving toward the brightest of futures. With plenty of attractions and events during the year, no complaints can be heard from visitors nor citizens. One of the area's most well-known attractions, Greenbo Lake State Resort Park, holds the pristine beauty of the Kentucky hills that inspired poet Jesse Stuart, a lifelong resident of the area. You will appreciate his visions as you visit the beautiful field stone lodge which bears his name and relax in front of the copper-hooded fireplace in the lobby.
