McAfee Stone House
Stone house near McAfee Station rests on land originally owned by the McAfee family, pioneer settlers of Mercer County. George McAfee, Sr. received a land grant of 1,400 acres in 1781 from then-Virginia governor Benjamin Harrison. Shortly after, five brothers from the McAfee family left Botetourt County, Virginia, and established McAfee Station, about five miles north of Harrodsburg.
