Attractions in Barren County...
The Indians in the area now known as Barren County burned away plant growth to promote grassland, which enticed buffalo to graze the area. The first of the pioneers found this area without trees or vegetation, so it looked "barren". Now a days, Barren County has gentle rolling hills covered with many trees and beautiful sights. The expanse of Barren River Lake, wildflowers, fall foliage, and wildlife. Many accommodations and attractions just to name a few of the county's benefits. With all it's atmosphere, both residents and visitors to the county find a relaxed place to enjoy the nature and activities.
