Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park, 4 mi. s. off I-75 exit 38, remembers the pioneers’ struggle and their dedication to westward expansion. More than 200,000 people traversed Boone’s Trace and the Wilderness Trail 1774-1796. Blazed by Daniel Boone from Cumberland Gap to the Kentucky River, the trace runs through the park. Most of this land was awarded to John Freeman for serving during the Revolution. Freeman and Levi Jackson, first Laurel County judge, are buried in the park.
Corn-grinding demonstrations are given in summer at McHargue’s Mill; surrounding the mill is a large collection of millstones.
