FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 25, 2013) — The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will dedicate a historical marker to a pioneer outpost and spring at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 29, at 4510 Winchester Road in Mount Sterling.
In 1790, settlers built Fort Baker, one of 36 pioneer outposts critical to the settlement of Clark, Montgomery and Bath counties. Established by John Baker, the station covered 20 acres and included a natural spring. The fort was evacuated after a June 29, 1790 attack by Native Americans.
Although the outpost was abandoned, several men returned at season’s end to harvest the corn crop they had planted. In 1793, John Baker gave 66 acres of his land and founded the town of Winchester. The spring and well was visited by President Andrew Jackson on Oct. 2, 1832.
This marker is sponsored by William T. Chenault and David R. Chenault.
The Kentucky Historical Marker Program, administered by KHS in cooperation with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, tells Kentucky’s story through the people, places and events that have shaped local communities across the Commonwealth. These markers highlight the importance of place in Kentucky’s collective history, in order to build strong communities for the future. The markers are on-the-spot history lessons that make connections between history, place and historical evidence housed in the Commonwealth’s many historical organizations. Through the program, Kentucky’s history is made accessible to the public on markers along the state’s roadways; online at www.history.ky.gov/markers and via the Explore Kentucky History smartphone application available free at iTunes and Google Play.
An agency of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet and accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, the Kentucky Historical Society, established in 1836, is committed to helping people understand, cherish and share Kentucky’s history by providing connections to the past, perspective on the present and inspiration for the future. The KHS history campus includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum at the State Arsenal.
