The Barren River's bluffs generally consist of oolitic limestone. Subterranean erosion has resulted in a very unique karst topography which includes a proliferation of caves and sinkholes. High quality limestone was once quarried in Warren County and sold under the trade name "Bowling Green Limestone". It was used for the Governor's Mansion in Frankfort, KY and in buildings in Washington,D.C.
