Although Daniel Boone is remembered in legend, Dr. Thomas Walker in fact preceded Boone by 17 years into Kentucky. A physician and surveyor, he led the first expedition through Cumberland Gap in 1750. Near the river which he named the Cumberland, Walker built a cabin, a replica of which stands on the site today.
