Henderson County, Kentucky



The first mention of High Street is made in this year, and that in connection with an order from the County Court, appointing Meridith FISHER , John HUSBANDS , Joseph FUQUAY and Jacob SPRINKLE commissioners to view a roadway from High Street, in the Town of Henderson, and such other streets and lots as to them may seem best to intersect the roads leading to Highland and Green River, at the mouth of Lick Creek. From the best information, the present First Street was originally called High Street, as Second Street was originally known as Mill Street.
