Bowling Green is a city in and the county seat of Warren County, Kentucky, with an estimated population of 165,732 in 2015, making it the it the third most-populous city in the state after Louisville and Lexington.

History: Founded by pioneers in 1798, Bowling Green was the provisional capital of Confederate Kentucky during the American Civil War. The first Europeans known to have reached the area carved their names on beech trees near the river around 1775. By 1778, settlers established McFadden’s Station on the north bank of the Barren River.
Some controversy exists over the source of the town’s name. The city itself follows the first county commissioners’ meeting (1798), which named the town “Bolin Green” after the Bowling Green in New York City where patriots had pulled down a statue of King George III and used the lead to make bullets during the American Revolution. Some historians dispute this, however, and credit Bowling Green, Virginia, or a personal “ball alley game” of Robert Moore’s instead. Early records indicate that the city name was also spelled “Bowlingreen”. In 1859, the Louisville and Nashville Railroad (currently CSX Transportation) laid railroad through Bowling Green that connected the city with northern and southern markets.
