Welcome to Fort Harrod

This is a diagram of the original Fort Harrod drawn by WW Stephenson based upon "reliable evidence" from such sources as "The Draper Manuscripts" and "Memoirs of Benjamin Vancleve". Stephenson was an attorney and historian in Harrodsburg in the early 1800's. His diagram is considered to be accurate. Notice the "L" off the Southwest corner of the Fort. Originally, it was designed to add more cabins inside the Fort as the population grew in the 1780's. It proved indefensible and was not re-constructed after the Shawnee burned it.

       "It is our mission at Friends of Fort Harrod to preserve and promote Fort Harrod and the State Park. This page is our tribute to them. We hope these videos, photos and stories will spark an interest that will bring you to the Fort to visit. We'll keep the fires burning for you!"
