Founded in 1774, Harrodsburg is Kentucky's oldest city but it is far from staid. Located among four National Register Historic Districts and 250 square miles of gently rolling pastureland is a town that bursts with historic charm in its superlative attractions: Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, the largest restored Shaker community in America; Beaumont Inn, the state's oldest family-operated country inn; Old Fort Harrod State Park with full-scale replica fort commemorating the first permanent settlement west of the Allegheny Mountains; the authentic 115-passenger Dixie Belle stearnwheeler, providing an up-close view of one of the most unique ecosystems in the country at the geologically ancient Kentucky River Palisades; an early American drug store at the circa 1865 Dedman's Drugstore with original soda fountain. Located in the heart of Kentucky's famed Bluegrass region, Harrodsburg is affordable and family-friendly and has a hometown atmosphere: streets lined with architectural treasures, shops given over to period crafts, restaurants dishing up traditional Southern cooking.
