Pike County, which is the largest county in Kentucky in terms of land mass, was founded in 1821 and was named for General Zebulon Pike, the explorer who discovered Pikes Peak. Between 1860 and 1891 the Hatfield-McCoy feud raged in Pike and is still considered to be the worlds most famous feud. Today, the Hatfield - McCoy Feud Driving Tour and the annual Hatfield - McCoy Heritage Weekend provide much insight into the history of the Hatfield - McCoy feud.
