We have an abundance of gifts from Mother Nature in our beautiful state. That is a simple truth. However, you may find the manmade wonders in Kentucky to be quite impressive as well. Creating impressive or “awe-worthy” attractions is quite a challenge when compared to our nature’s abundant forests, natural bridges, lakes, rivers and interconnecting caves. Fortunately, we have some talented architects, engineers and everyday people that put their heart and soul into adding other great things and places to the Bluegrass State.

They have been a part of our state since their design in 1895 by a 24 year old named Joseph Dominic Baldez, as the roof of the Churchill Downs grandstand. There have been just as many celebrities walking past those spires as on the red carpet… possibly more, as not everyone gets the red carpet. This is home to Kentucky’s biggest economy boost annually and the image of the spires is recognized around the world.
