Squire Boone Chapter 7: Squire Boone’s Painted Stone Station

-A A +A
By Ron Van Stockum

Following the successful defense of Boonesborough during the Great Siege of 1778, Squire Boone, early in 1779, moved his family again to Fort Harrod.

And in the spring of that year he took them in two large canoes down the

Kentucky and Ohio rivers to the Falls of the Ohio.

Here, Louisville had been laid out and named in honor of Louis XVI of

France, who was providing crucial support to the struggling colonies.

Boone purchased town lots and erected a cabin near the mouth of Beargrass Creek.
