Colonel Sanders- Corbin TourismHarland Sanders Café and Museum 

Dine at Colonel Sanders' very first restaurant to serve Kentucky Fried Chicken! Built in 1937 and now placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the carefully restored Sanders Café still serves up the colonel’s secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices found in his now world-famous, finger-lickin’ good fried chicken.

Treat yourself to a great meal and a walk through the past surrounded by exhibits, artifacts and Americana memorabilia from life in the 1930s. Learn how Colonel Harland Sanders envisioned America’s automobile-dependent future and began selling his homemade lunches out of a roadside service station, opening one of the first local motor courts and cafés on July 4, 1940. See how his original idea backed by a $105 Social Security check transformed the Sanders Café into a prospering business that grew alongside the country that still enjoys his original Kentucky Fried Chicken today. For more than 30 years, his remarkable story has served as the inspiration for the family-fun World Chicken Festival held every September.
