Kenton's Station

Kenton's Station near Washington, KY
The following is an early account of the location of Kenton’s Station. In the photo you can see the location of the spring. The house in the photo is still standing.

The bank is quite bluff from the Station locality, or Blockhouse, to the Kenton Spring - from 60 feet above the bed of the creek to the blockhouse & about 35 yards from the Kenton Spring to the blockhouse. The block house commanded the Spring, an excellent spring. Long rifle shot also commanded the Indian Spring, which was about 110 yards from the blockhouse: The Station was about a mile N.W. of Washington, KY. The ground descended each way from the Station except the West - & on the East side, quite abruptly.
