The Barren River is the Green River's largest tributary and is named for the barrens, large treeless grasslands found along its course. The first small steamboat reached Bowling Green in 1828. A series of locks and dams completed in 1838 make the river easily navigable for larger steamboats all the way to the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.
