History

Settlement and incorporation

The first Europeans credited with having settled the area now known as Bowling Green were Robert Moore, his brother George Moore and General Elijah Covington. The Moore brothers arrived from Virginia around 1794. In 1798, only two years after Warren County had been formed, Robert Moore donated two acres of land to county trustees for the purpose of constructing public buildings. Soon after, he donated 30-40 more acres surrounding the original plot. The city of Bowling Green was officially incorporated by the state of Kentucky on March 6, 1798.

The origin of the name Bowling Green has not been definitely pinned to a single source by historians. Some say at the first county commissioners meeting in early 1798, the pioneers decided that the new town would be "called and known" by the name of Bolin Green." This name was after the Bowling Green in New York City, where patriots had pulled down a statue of King George III and used the lead to make bullets during the American Revolution. Other say the Virginian settlers could have been honoring Bowling Green, Virginia. Still others say, Robert Moore kept a "ball alley game" on his residence which guests called bowling on the green.[1] Early records indicate that the city name was also spelled Bowlingreen and Bolin Green. Bowling Green is a town located in Caroline County, Virginia. ...


The nineteenth century

By 1810, Bowling Green had only 154 residents. However, the increasing use of the steamboat for commerce and the proximity of the Barren River increased Bowling Green's importance. Canal locks and dams on the Barren River made it much more navigable. In 1832, the first portage railway was made from the river to the where the current county courthouse stands. Mules pulled freight and passengers to and from the city on the tracks. For other uses, see Steamboat (disambiguation). ... The Barren River is a river in Western Kentucky, USA.

Despite rapid urbanization of the Bowling Green area in the 1830s, agriculture remained an important tenet of working life. A visitor to Bowling Green noted the boasting of a tavern proprietor by the name of Benjamin Vance:

"[Vance] says that he has seen a turnip this fall that measures thirty-two inches around, and has a beet that weighs sixteen pounds and a half;... that corn in this country grows so fast that if you look at it the next, it has grown a foot higher; that the "little hickory twigs" growing in the barrens have roots as large as his legs..."

In 1859, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad (currently CSX Transportation) laid railroad through Bowling Green that connected the city with northern and southern markets. Chartered by the state of Kentucky in 1850, the L&N, as it was generally known, grew into one of the great success stories of American business. ... CSX redirects here. ...


Bowling Green declared itself neutral in the American Civil War. However, because of its prime location and resources, both the Union and Confederacy sought control of the city. The majority of residents took the side of the Confederacy. On September 18, 1861, to the delight of the Bowling Green residents the Confederacy succeeded in occupying Bowling Green under the command of General Simon Bolivar Buckner. Surrounding hills were fortified to secure any possible military approaches to the valuable river and railroad assets. The Confederate government of Kentucky chose Bowling Green as its capital in November, 1861.[2] On February 14, 1862, after receiving reports that Fort Henry on the Tennessee River and Fort Donelson on the Cumberland River had been captured by Union forces, the Confederates ended their occupation of Bowling Green. During their retreat, the Confederates destroyed bridges across the Barren River, the railroad depot and other important buildings. The city was subject to various disruptions and raids throughout the remainder of the war. During the summer of 1864, Union general Stephen G. Burbridge arrested 22 men in and around Bowling Green on suspicion of treason. This incident and other harsh treatments by federal authorities during the war led to bitterness among Bowling Green residents toward the Union and sympathies with the Confederacy.

Consequently, downtown streets became a bottle-neck for traffic. Traffic was constantly congested. In 1949, the U.S. Route 31W Bypass was opened to alleviate traffic problems.
