    Daniel Boone ventured into Bluegrass Country in 1775 as a leader of a team clearing a road through the wilderness from Virginia to central Kentucky. This "Wilderness Road" pierced the barrier of the Appalachian Mountains through the Cumberland Gap. With the end of the American Revolution, this route became a major avenue for the westward migration of the early pioneers. In the same year, Boone moved his family to Kentucky and founded the settlement of Boonesborough.
