John and Elizabeth McCoun McMurtry established this station around 1780, and the log house presumed to be part of the station still exists within this structure.
Captain McMurtry survived the Battle of Blue Licks but was captured, required to run
the gauntlet several times, and ransomed at Detroit. He made his way back to
Kentucky only to be killed by Indians at Harmar's Defeat in 1790. (Marker Number 72.)
