Frankfort, KY – The History of the City
During the early 1700s, the area surrounding what is now Frankfort was very much “frontier country.” By the middle of the century, however, settlers and explorers had entered Kentucky in ever-increasing numbers. At the time of Frankfort’s founding in 1786, Kentucky was still part of Virginia, but statehood was achieved in 1792. Frankfort outbid several other towns, including Lexington, for the honor of becoming the new state’s capital city. Early histories report that Frankfort’s bid included the use of a house to serve as the capitol until a new building could be constructed, several town lots, $3,000 worth of gold, boxes of nails with a total weight of 1,500 pounds and 10 crates of glass.
The city grew rapidly during the 1800s, and by 1900, the population was almost 9,500. Within 10 years, the first automobiles had arrived; auto parts, car dealers and garages comprised a significant part of the city’s growth between 1910 and 1920. Prohibition forced many of the local distilleries to close, but once the law was repealed, distillers returned to the area, fueling additional growth.

• Asphalt paving covers a wide range of services, including road construction, asphalt overlays and asphalt paving. Asphalt milling and reclamation, pavement reinforcement and speed humps can also be considered part of this category. See more about Asphalt Paving
• Sealcoating is an important part of asphalt maintenance.

Sealcoating also enhances the appearance of asphalt pavement, restoring its rich color and smoothing out minor surface flaws. See more about Asphalt Sealcoating
• Asphalt repair is essential if you want your pavement to reach its expected life. Cracks and potholes allow water to drain beneath the pavement and erode the foundation. This can result in much larger cracks, more numerous potholes or alligator cracking. Timely repairs that are performed before the damage worsens can prevent premature failure of the pavement as well as more expensive repairs. See more about Asphalt Repair
