Caney, Kentucky

Caney is a Morgan county community at the mouth of Brushy Fork of Caney Creek about seven miles south of West Liberty. The name is said to come from Elcaney Lykins, a resident of the area. The community was also known as Walnut Grove, for a local church, and Pinhook. While the railroad was active (about 1902 to 1933), it was a thriving community with numerous businesses. The Caney post office opened in 1854 and closed in 1994.
