Hatfield - McCoy Feud Driving Tour-Pikeville, Kentucky

If you’re fascinated by the bloody Hatfield-McCoy feud, the late 19th- century conflict between rival Kentucky and West Virginia families, a visit to Pike County, Ky. will help satisfy your curiosity. Many tourists each year travel to eastern Kentucky to see the areas and historic relics that remain from the days of the feud. Improvements to various feud sites have been completed, and historical markers commemorate many key locales. Research by local historians has been compiled in an audio compact disc called the "Hatfield–McCoy Feud Driving Tour." The CD provides a self-guided driving tour of the restored feud sites. It includes maps and pictures as well as the audio CD. You can order the CD by visiting or by calling 800-844-7453. You might also wish to attend the annual Hillbilly Days festival in Pikeville, Ky., which each April draws thousands of visitors to the area of the feud for a weekend of regional entertainment, food, contests and celebrations.
