Historic Locust Grove
A Country Worth Defending
Constructed in 1791 at the edge of the frontier, Locust Grove is an American treasure. The house was built by William Croghan for his family and later became the final home of General George Rogers Clark, hero of the West in the Revolutionary War.
A Country Worth Defending tells the story of the gripping fight for land and settlement in the Kentucky Wilderness and details the ebb and flow of ordinary life at Locust Grove and the pioneering souls who called this important American landmark home.
