The Fairview Obelisk

Jefferson Davis Memorial

As if you didn’t think Tennessee offered enough places to visit then you should think about Kentucky itself.  Just about 7-10 minutes away from my sister’s house stands this Obelisk.  At 351 feet high it is the largest standing concrete Obelisk in the WORLD and the fifth tallest monument in the United States.  Yeah, and it’s in Fairview Kentucky.  It stands as a memorial to Jefferson Davis.  Who is that you say?  That’s what I said, but come to find out that he was the first President of the Confederate States.
