, USA, is an unincorporated community
and near-ghost town with a population of just under 1000, a large number of which are over the age of 50, located at the junction of Osceola County Road 523
and U.S. Highway 441
in Osceola County, Florida
. The area was named for Mary Lily Kenan Flagler (from Kenansville, North Carolina
), the wife of the prominent railroad entrepreneur Henry Morrison Flagler
Once a semi-successful place whose economic activity revolved around cattle, Kenansville proved to be too far off the beaten path to be a viable community, especially after Florida's Turnpike, which passes by it, was built without an exit into the community. Children who live in or near the community are bused to St. Cloud area schools, a 45 minute drive away.
Former PBR bull rider Tater Porter resides here.
