In this post we'll talk about some of the potential pitfalls to developing the Keller's Bridge area like East Cavalry Battlefield.
Of course, with any grandiose plan, there might be potential issues. Here are a few to consider.

Monuments. Cost is very prohibitive. It might be years before organizations could raise enough money to have a monument created and installed. And oversight in terms of design would have to be worked out between the Foundation and the group raising the funds...in no way would we want to create a monument that would encourage vandalism. And as the years go by, how are the monuments maintained?
Whatever direction is taken at Keller's Bridge, we have to consider several factors. Increasing tourism by modeling a national park will be expensive. Keeping the area in such a state as to invite visitors will take a lot of labor each week. Working with local land owners to ensure that increased visitation will not be a hindrance is a concern. By my, oh my, think about how the area could look, and how this would bring numerous tourists to Cynthiana!
