Robert Clarke's Station (1784-?) - Robert Clarke built a station in 1784 on the Hume Bedford Road just outside Paris, Kentucky. His descendents continued to modify and occupy the site until the 20th century when the main dwelling burned.

The original station has been described as having consisted of a two-story log blockhouse and two other log buildings connected to one another by a stockade. The log blockhouse later was modified by the addition of a two-story brick structure in front. The other two buildings and the stockade have not survived.
