Constitution Square Historic Site was the birthplace of Kentucky’s statehood. In 1776, Kentucky was still part of the frontier and a county of Virginia. The Wilderness Road, blazed by Daniel Boone, led pioneers through the Cumberland Gap and into Central Kentucky. Danville’s prominent location on the Wilderness Road caused it to become a crossroad for early settlers, and a center of political activity.
