Fort Knox

Where is Fort Knox?

MMDE: Fort Knox is in Tennessee

Current: Fort Knox is in Kentucky

Some are remembering Fort Knox as being in Tennessee, whereas all evidence today show it's always been in Kentucky.

Famous for it's gold reserves, as well as a military base, Fort Knox is the byword in security. Some people are reporting knowing servicemen who were placed there, and are sure they were in Tennessee.

There is a Knox County in Tennessee, as well as Knoxville, the town, both of which could be adding to the confusion, but apart from the name there is no connection.

Originally for WW1 artillery training

Built in 1918 during the first world war, it was originally used as a training ground for the military to test and develop artillery.

There are a few references to it's location being remembered differently.
