Pioneer Memorial State Park (Old Fort Harrod State Park)

100 S. College St., Harrodsburg, KY

Pioneer Memorial State Park consists of a reconstruction of late eighteenth century Ford Harrod. The reconstruction is located on a site south of the original fort. The reconstructed fort is a square stockade 200 feet on a side. The original fort was a 240 foot square according to a description and drawing by Van Cleve who stayed there in the late 1790s. Two two-story blockhouses are located on the northeast and southeast corners. A row of one-room log cabins is located on the north side. The schoolhouse and spring have also been reconstructed. Within the boundary of the park is a section of the original pioneer cemetery with crude eighteenth century headstones.
