SB-28. Crittenden County

#28 is CRITTENDEN COUNTY (Marion is county seat, named for KY's 17th Gov. John J Crittenden). Where do you eat? Who do you visit? #KY120Game — with Charlotte Flanary and 16 others.
  • Matt Osborne I've only been to Marion once, so I'll have to defer to others, but one of the largest Amish communities in Kentucky is there, so I'm finding some baked goods.
  • Sandra Arce There is a good barbecue place going into Marion. you walk up to a window and order, Then eat on a picnic table. We ate there one time and would definitely go back. It might be called Marion barbecue. I'm not sure.
  • Jeff Noble In an entry on my blog dated September 11, 2008, I wrote the following about Crittenden - "From there US641 continues over into Crittenden County near the little town of Mexico, at the intersection with KY70. A few miles north of here is the city of Marion, seat of government for Crittenden County. At Gum Street, US641 is joined by US60, which would be our route most of the rest of our journey within the Commonwealth of Kentucky." I obviously drove through without food or friend.
