Dave Contarino Explains the Evolution of Anchorage, Kentucky

Dave Contarino
Dave Contarino knows when people hear the word Anchorage, they think of Alaska. But to him, the word Anchorage means the beautiful, historic town in Kentucky where he lives. Anchorage, Kentucky, dates back to the 1700s, when people began discovering the area, which early maps identified as “Hite’s Mill.”

Today, Dave Contarino maintains a historic home in the area, where he enjoys spending as much time as possible. Below, Dave Contarino answers questions about the city that is located near the popular tourist spots of Louisville, Kentucky.

Q: Anchorage isn’t located on the water, so why the water-themed name?

Dave Contarino: The city is actually named after one of its earliest residents, a shipping boat captain whose home was called the Anchorage. He died in 1875, and three years later, the city was incorporated and named after him in order to honor him.
