Because of how the state included a diverse population with regional variations, places in Kentucky did not have similar characteristics at the same time. As the lives of the people in some parts of the state fifty years ago varied from those after Kentucky became a state, the question arises regarding the life of the average person who lived then and lives now in Kentucky. In addressing this, it is useful to compare and contrast the various features of life soon after Kentucky became a state with those of modern times. This chapter attempts to look into various aspects of daily life such as transportation, communication, clothes and fashion, food, religion, recreation, and work, and how modern-day ordinary facilities such as running water, electricity, and other such factors differentiated the old life from today's life.

Keywords:   regional variations, Kentucky, life, culture, transportation, communication, running water, old life
