Harland Sanders Cafe and Museum
The Harlan Sanders Cafe is in Corbin, about two and a half hours southeast of Louisville. It's the site of the Colonel's first restaurant, which in 1990 was restored to simulate its 1940s splendor in honor of what would have been the late Colonel's 100th birthday (He had died ten years earlier). Although billed as "the world's first Kentucky Fried Chicken," it really isn't; that honor falls to the first KFC franchise restaurant, which is unexpectedly located in Murray, Utah. The Harlan Sanders Cafe, however, was the first restaurant to serve Kentucky Fried Chicken, before it became a franchise.
