Jefferson Davis Monument State Historic Site

Eight miles west of Elkton, at Fairview, stands the fourth tallest monument in the United States – the tallest poured in place concrete obelisk in the world. Jefferson Davis State Historic Site is a memorial to the famous Kentuckian born on this site on June 3, 1808. A 351-foot obelisk constructed on a foundation of solid Kentucky Limestone, marks the site, and an elevator to the top gives visitors a bird’s eye view of the countryside.
