Strange Facts About Every US State ~ K & L

Continuing with a new series of the strangest facts about each one of the United States. 

Kansas

1. White Castle is the very first hamburger chain to be started in the United States and it began in Wichita, Kansas. Interestingly enough, there are no White Castles currently open in the whole state.

2. What does a horse lie down on during surgery? They lay on waterbeds specially designed for them if you are at the College of Veterinary Medicine at the Kansas State University.

3. Of course the state is also known for the Wizard of Oz, crazy tornadoes, and those tall, beautiful sunflowers now grown around the country.

Kentucky

1. Bowling Green, Kentucky may seem like a no-name small town with nothing happening, but that isn’t entirely true. If you ever owned a Corvette, it was manufactured in this town.

2. Corbin, Kentucky is another little known town that is actually known for one big thing: Kentucky Fried Chicken. The very first Colonel Sanders chicken establishment was opened right here.

3. In 1893, birthday parties were given new meaning by two sisters out of Louisville. These sisters were responsible for singing “Happy Birthday to You” for the very first time. It has changed the way we celebrate birthdays to this very day.

Louisiana

1. There are almost half as many alligators as there are people in Louisiana.

2. Louisiana’s waters are home to 117,518 oyster reefs.

3. Tabasco sauce is still made on Avery Island today, where it was first created in the 1860s.
