Visit the historic Rosine Barn
Rosine, Kentucky, is where Bill Monroe grew up. It is also where Monroe, his siblings, and his parents are buried. Also buried in the Rosine Cemetery is Monroe’s greatest influence, his Uncle Pen. The gravesites are well worth a visit, and you can also see the little country church where Bill Monroe’s funeral was conducted. Just a mile or two past the Monroe Home Place is the historic barn at Rosine. Every Friday night, rain or shine, you can visit the barn for an authentic, bluegrass music jamboree. There’s jamming in the general store and out in the parking lot. If you want to play, just sign up inside the barn.
If you are making a day out of it, you can eat at the newly reopened general store, next to the barn, or go into Beaver Dam for a bite. If you plan to stay the night, check out the local lodging options.
