Description
Pikeville, county seat to the state's largest county, is named for Gen. Zebulon M. Pike, a U.S. Army officer and explorer who discovered Pike's Peak in Colorado. A statue dedicated to Col. James A. Garfield, Union Army officer and 20th president of the United States, can be viewed in the Pikeville City Park.
The town is home to the Pikeville Cut-Through and Scenic Overlook, purportedly the second largest earth-moving project north of the Panama Canal. It took some 14 years to physically re-route the river and the railroad system to relieve the town from flooding when it was completely underwater 1957-77.
