About Harrodsburg, KY
Harrodstown (sometimes Harrod's Town) was laid out and founded by James Harrod on June 16, 1774. Harrod led a company of adventurers totaling thirty-one men, beginning May 1774 in Pennsylvania, down the Monongahela and Ohio rivers in canoes and through a series of other rivers and creeks to the town's present-day location. Later that same year, amid Dunmore's War, Lord Dunmore dispatched two men to warn the surveyors of intimated Shawnee attacks, Daniel Boone and Michael Stoner, who are said to have completed the round trip of eight hundred miles in 64 days ; the settlement was abandoned as a result and resettled the following year by March. It was one of three settlements in present day Kentucky at the time the Thirteen Colonies declared independence in 1776, along with Logan's Fort and Boonesborough. Also known as Oldtown, Harrodstown was the first seat of Virginia's Kentucky (1776), Lincoln (1780), and Mercer (1785) counties upon their formations.
