Kentucky Lake Historical Postcards - circa 1944

These antique postcards date back to 1944, when Kentucky Dam was first built. They give us an insight to the lake's early days. KY Dam is a great landmark that us locals tend to take for granted. The building of this dam created one of the largest man-made lakes in the world! Kentucky Lake is 184 miles long and has a shoreline of 2400 miles.
