"Harrodsburg" (327) is the modern name of the town in north central Kentucky that was originally settled by James Harrod in 1774 and called Harrodstown. It is often referred to as the oldest permanent American settlement west of Appalachians. It is also, as the Appendix suggests, close to Boonesborough (326).
