Personal collection

An old historical postcard of the new Graham Springs Hotel, circa 1920. Portions of the hotel evidently became James B. Haggin Memorial Hospital.

Daniel Boone Cave

 

This is the cave near Shawnee Run Springs where Daniel Boone spent the winter of 1769-1770. The opening was covered with boards and helped protect him through the winter. There was a large, white oak tree growing near the cave and the initials "D.B." were found carved into the trunk. At one time, these initials were protected by glass attached to the tree. When the tree was cut down, the initials were removed from the tree and presented to Henry Cleveland Wood, who later donated it to Old Fort Harrod's Mansion Museum.
