About Bowling Green

During the Civil War, Bowling Green was the Confederate Capital of Kentucky.  Now it is known as the Corvette Capital of the world.  The historic downtown dates back to 1798.  Fountain Square Park retains the flavor of that era, with landscaping that has much the same appearance as when designed by John Cox Underwood in 1871.  The city is large enough, with a population of 50,000, to provide all the attractive features demanded by today’s residents, yet small enough to have a warm and comfortable atmosphere.  Western Kentucky University, with its close-in campus and more than 18,000 students, provides cultural and sports events enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.
