Located in the southwestern part of the state, Fulton, Kentucky was first known as Pontotoc by the native Chickasaw Indians. The town was founded in 1828, along with its sister city, South Fulton, Tennessee, when Benjamin Franklin Carr purchased 160 acres from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The town was labeled the "end of the line" by the federal government due to its pivotal position at the termination point of the Paducah-Memphis rail-all mail sent to the region was addressed as such. Images of America: Fulton follows the agricultural and industrial development of the region, and provides local folklore as well.
