Duncan Tavern, built in 1788, is one of the finest examples of an eighteenth century early settlement home later used as a tavern in America.  Constructed of native limestone, it was built by Joseph Duncan, an officer  in the Revolutionary War, and as a tavern went under the sign "The Goddess  of  Liberty."  The oldest standing tavern in Kentucky was a gathering place for  such pioneers as Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton, James Smith "first rebel of the  Revolution," Peter Houston and Michael Stoner.
