Burnside is a home rule-class city in Pulaski County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 637 at the 2000 census. In 2004, Burnside became the only town in Pulaski County or any adjoining county to allow the sale of alcoholic beverages in qualified establishments. Since then, Burnside has annexed about eight miles of shoreline along Lake Cumberland in order to include Lee's Ford Marina on Fishing Creek, allowing it to sell alcohol.On August 28, 2007, Burnside voters again approved the sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants that seat at least 100 people and derive at least 70% of their gross receipts from the sale of food, by a vote of 227-104. The petition for the election was started by two Pulaski County clergymen in an attempt to reverse Burnside's "moist" status.On October 15, 2013 the City of Burnside voted to go fully "wet" by a count of 123-39.HistoryThe community was originally settled at the juncture of the Cumberland River and its South Fork.
