Stand on Georgetown’s Main Street and imagine a log stockade surrounded by wilderness. This was what Georgetown looked like in 1775, when John McClelland and his family built a fort overlooking the huge spring discovered in 1774. They left the next year because of Indian attacks. It wasn’t until 1786 that Rev. Elijah Craig founded a town around the spring. Under Craig’s leadership Georgetown became a bustling center of industry and education in the early 1800’s. A few early buildings remain, along with many grand residences and elaborately detailed commercial buildings reflecting Victorian styles of the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Spend a morning or afternoon taking a “Walk Through Time” in Georgetown and enjoy a modern Main Street with an old-fashioned atmosphere.

The Main Street walking tour is about 2 miles long and will take several hours at a leisurely pace. There are antique and specialty shops along the route, as well as restaurants.
