Isaac Shelby Cemetery State Historic Site
Visit the smallest park in the park system where the ½-acre burial grounds of the Shelby family sits amid the peaceful countryside of Lincoln Country. The stone-walled cemetery contains the monument and resting place of Kentucky's first and fifth governor, Isaac Shelby (1750-1826), along with the 22 graves of his wife and family. They rest in what Shelby once called, “the most beautiful land he had ever seen” when first visiting KY as a surveyor in 1775.
