Description: The spring here, first called Stewart's or Phillips' and then Brooks' Spring, was a well-known camping place in the early 1780s on the main route from the Falls of the Ohio & Beargrass Creek to Bullitt's Lick & Harrodsburg. Revolutionary War skirmishes with settlers & British-allied American Indians made the area dangerous. Presented by Hester Family.
