Kentucky Bend

Kentucky Bend


Kentucky (KY), US
Surrounded on three sides by the Mississippi, across which in any direction lies Missouri, and on the fourth side by Tennessee, this drop of land in a crook of the river is actually part of Kentucky, a quirk of surveying mistakes, political boundary definitions, and an 1812 earthquake that redirected the river. 2002 est. pop.: 15
