Henry Clay's Station (1787-?) - Dr. Henry Clay, who fathered one of three separate though related branches of Clays in the county, came to Bourbon County in 1787. He is reported to have built a stockade in the Clintonville District in 1787 then a stone house the following year. No primary sources were located for this information.

The stone house he built in 1788 is still standing. It is located along a farm road which runs southwest from Winchester Road opposite the juncture of Winchester and Spears Mill roads. The Clay cemetery is north of the house.
