  • Kentucky dubbed ‘houseboat capital’ by lawmakers

    Lake Cumberland’s rising waters and reputation as a “Houseboat Lake” no doubt were inspiration for Kentucky Sen. Chris Girdler’s resolution naming Kentucky the “Houseboat Capital of the World.” The resolution was adopted recently by the Kentucky Senate, making the title official.
    The houseboat designation made national news.
