Climate[edit]

I believe that Maysville is within the northern periphery of the humid subtropical climate and Upper South but I am reluctant to create this section in the article as I have only visited Maysville a few times and would prefer to have a "local" create it possibly with first-hand descriptions- any takers? Thanks.

Per the 2003 USDA climate zone map, Maysville, KY has a USDA Climate zone rating of "7" [[1]], just thought that might be of interest. As I understand, zone 7 is the first truly humid subtropical climate zone rating in the eastern USA (with average annual minimum temperature being 0 to 10 degrees F) and zone 6 is the border for Continental and Subtropical climate in the eastern U.S.A. (6a would be the periphery of Continental and 6b would be the periphery of Subtropical climate). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.133.42.16 (talk) 16:13, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

Sad[edit]

This page is really sad considering Maysville, Kentucky, played such a prominent role in the history of the United States. Daniel Boone had a tavern here after all! : )

When I get a chance, I'll beef up the article. I just wanted to post this as a reminder to people: Don't be shy. Get in there and edit! That's what Wikipedia is for. --~Nealparr~ (Talk|Contribs) 01:24, 22 December 2006 (UTC)

I've rewritten the lead, Geography, and History sections. More history needed-- tobacco, the railroad, the Civil War, the whole 20th century, etc., but I'm burned out on the subject for now. Hope it not still "really sad" though. Janeky (talk) 04:49, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

"both produced mainly by African American slaves"[edit]

Maysville was more prosperous and did have more slaves than other parts of NE Ky but this "mainly" seems highly dubious (both for the region and the crops involved) and wasn't supported at all by the source cited (2 short entries at Ky Atlas). Better source? or just retire the point? — LlywelynII 19:32, 25 July 2013 (UTC)

Railroads[edit]

I did a series of stubs for the Maysville and Lexington Railroad and its successors based on the list of Ky RRs article, but it would be nice to see them double-checked, corrected, and fleshed out. It'd be interesting to read about why the road failed, since if it had taken off so would the town've. — LlywelynII 19:32, 25 July 2013 (UTC)
