AAA Editor Notes
Old Fort Harrod State Park, downtown on S. College St., is on land colonized by Capt. James Harrod in 1774. A reproduction of the fort at this first permanent English settlement west of the Alleghenies includes replicas of Kentucky’s first schoolhouse and pioneer cabins. On site are the Mansion Museum; the Lincoln Marriage Temple, with the cabin where Abraham Lincoln’s parents wed; the George Rogers Clark Memorial; and the Pioneer Cemetery. The cemetery, the oldest burial ground west of the Alleghenies, contains the graves of more than 500 settlers.

Picnicking is permitted.
