William McAfees Station / Round Ridge

Part of a 1773 survey, the station was built by William and Rebecca Curry McAfee in 1779. He was with George Rogers Clark and the group who marched on Chillicothe and Piqua in 1781.

McAfee was badly wounded by the Indians and was taken to Floyd's Station (near Louisville) where he held onto life until his wife arrived at his side. He died soon thereafter.

William McAfee's Station is the probable site of Fort Liberty.

The land and station site later became the property of Joseph Morgan who built Round Ridge in 1817 for his bride, Ann Bryan. Learn more about early stations.
