About

Nelson County has been home to many historic figures and buildings with Federal Hill being the most noticable of the structures in the County and is featured on the 2002 Kentucky State Quarter. Tradition holds that Federal Hill, owned by Senator John Rowan, inspired songwriter Stephen Foster, who was a cousin of Senator Rowan, to write My Old Kentucky Home  after a visit to the plantation in 1852.
