What: Fort Harrod Settlement & Raid
Come and see how the Frontier was won right here at the birth place of Kentucky. Kentucky’s first permanent settlement was started on June 16th 1774 right here in Harrodsburg. Of course they called it Harrodstown for the first few years and constructed the sturdy fort on the hill in 1775. This event is a 18th century re-enactment and is our signature event of the year. Presentations, settlers, Natives, sutlers and battles will take place for two short days in the warm June sun just like it did nearly 240 years ago. The event is free with regular paid admission to the fort. For information call 859-734-3314.
