Cumberland Gap National Historical Park was chosen to be the design for the America The Beautiful quarter for Kentucky as it honors a site where Native Americans and settlers alike traveled through a break in the Appalachian Mountains. After the Revolutionary War, people wanted to settle west, and used the Cumberland Gap as a way to get through the Appalachian Mountains. Eventually a railroad was built and it became strategically important to both the North and South during the Civil War. In 1940, Cumberland Gap won National Park status in Kentucky as it was vital in the country’s expansion during the 1800s. Today, Cumberland Gap greets about one million visitors a year and has many trails and scenic spots throughout the park, such as Pinnacle overlook.
