Rivers served as highways for many nineteenth-century Kentuckians. Steamboats brought manufactured goods from big cities and carried farm produce to distant markets.Travelers welcomed the relative comforts and rapid pace of the paddlewheelers. Warren Countians often boated to Louisville for business, shopping, and family visits. A popular excursion, and one frequently booked by school groups, was a river trip to Mammoth Cave.
Like people today, guests of Massey Springs Resort in the early twentieth century enjoyed fishing at Green River's Lock #5. Warren County had two other health resorts; Glen Lily Wells on Glen Lily Road and Stallard Springs in northwest Warren County.
