McAfee Farm Historic District

201 Hudson Rd, Harrodsburg, KY

The McAfee Farm is located on the east side of a bend in the Old Louisville Road north of Harrodsburg. The 3.5-acre site contains two buildings. On the south end of the site is the John Armstrong McAfee House built in 1800. The house is one story and contains two pens, one of which is log while the other is hewn timber with mud infill. West of the John Armstrong McAfee House is a spring, which quite possibly was a deciding factor in John Armstrong McAfee's decision to build his house in this location. Approximately 280 feet north of the John Armstrong Mcafee House is the James Jackson McAfee House built circa 1865. The James Jackson McAfee House is a single-pile, three-bay, two-story house ornamented with elements from both the Greek revival and Italianate styles.
