Beautifully situated on the banks of the Ohio River, Augusta has been repeatedly recognized for its historical and cultural significance, as well as its nine miles of unobstructed, outstanding river views. In 2005, Kentucky's most famous historian, the late Dr. Thomas Clark, created a list of Kentucky's Treasures; eleven places of particular historical, cultural, or ecological significance. Among such notable landmarks as Mammoth Cave, Cumberland Gap and Shaker Village, Augusta is the only city included on this list of "must-see" locations in the Bluegrass State.
