Harrodsburg, KY – The History
Harrodsburg was the first permanent non-native settlement to be established west of the Appalachian Mountains and the oldest city in what would become the state of Kentucky. Although not officially incorporated until 1836, Harrodsburg was founded in 1774 by James Harrod; Harrod had been ordered to survey the land that the British had promised to give soldiers who had served England during the French and Indian War. However, shortly after Harrod founded the town, Daniel Boone arrived with orders from Lord Dunmore recalling the men to serve in the military during Lord Dunmore’s War. The war was so short-lived that it was virtually over the day that the men arrived back in Virginia.
In March 1775, Harrod returned to the area with a group of settlers. He became a wealthy farmer who would eventually own more than 20,000 acres. He was well-respected and served in various political offices. However, Harrod may be most famous for his mysterious disappearance in 1792. He went hunting with two other men and never returned. No one knows whether he chose to abandon his wife, was murdered by one of his companions, died from an accident or illness, was taken captive by Native Americans or met an entirely different fate.
Throughout the 20th century, Harrodsburg enjoyed relatively slow but steady growth. The population was approximately 3,150 in 1910 and 6,061 in 1960. As of 2015, the population of Harrodsburg was estimated to be almost 8,400.
