Quick history of Bowling Green

I have always wondered about the name “Bowling Green” and how it originated – one story goes it stemmed from a game played in the downtown square lawn similar to “bowling on the green”

My only question with that – What was the town called when they were playing their game?

Heres what I found on the bgky.org website

 Bowling Green began with the establishment of a trading post on the Barren River known as McFadden’s Station in about 1785. Earlier, in 1775, thirteen long hunters had carved their names on a beech tree at another Barren River crossing.  

Warren County was formed from Logan County in 1796 and became the twenty-fourth county in Kentucky. 

In the early 1790’s, Robert Moore built a cabin near a large spring in central Warren County not far from the Barren River. 

March 1798 a board of commissioners named the town Bowling Green. 

 

Any thoughts or explanations are very welcome

Fear of Self – For Fear Itself

Browsing the internet and found this quote from Harry S. Truman.   This is how I feel about the medical & fitness industry.  My only hope is that people come to understand the importance of self-awareness and where their place is among the grand scheme of things.

“I never give them [the public] hell. I just tell the truth, and they think it is hell.”  Harry S. Truman
