This US Army fort, located an hour south of Louisville, is
world-famous as the home of America's largest stockpile of gold
bullion; however, the repository is closed to visitors. A popular
attraction though, is the General George Patton Museum of
Leadership, which has exhibitions of US Army artefacts going back
to 1775. Adjacent to the museum is Keyes Park, offering pleasant
picnic areas and a playground for children to run around in.
