The road crosses the transition between the Eden Shale Hills and the Outer Bluegrass. Burley tobacco was first grown across the Ohio River in southern Ohio and spread south into Kentucky after the Civil War. Tobacco was intensively grown here and tobacco curing barns still stand on area farms. Maysville became a major tobacco auction market.
