Centuries past, before central Kentucky became settled, a great swath of grassland and savannah stretched from the Ohio River down into Tennessee. Pioneers established Munfordville right in the middle of it. As settlement expanded, these "barrens" all but disappeared. Now, however, the value of these original native grasslands is being rediscovered, and many of these native, or ecotype, species have been replanted here in the park.
