Kentucky derives its name from “Kaintuckee”, which the Cherokee called all land south of the Ohio River. With its tobacco farms and beautiful race horses, Kentucky is divided into three main regions: Western, Central and Eastern Kentucky. Early explorers settled in Eastern Kentucky, a part of Appalachia, coming from Virginia, North and South Carolina. Many of the earliest explorers and settlers were of Scots-Irish descent, a people known for their independent spirits and restless nature, coming from Pennsylvania into the Shenandoah Valley before entering Kentucky territory.
