Miller- Denny Home Circa 1841

This impressive antebellum Greek Revival home is located in Paint Lick, Garrard County.Built by George Denny on the site of Col. William Miller's Fort Paint Lick built in 1776.

According to the historical marker near old Paint Lick Presbyterian Church and Paint Lick Cemetery, "First settlers found Indian signs painted on trees along creek banks and around the nearby salt lick. They gave settlement the name of Paint Lick." Paint Lick Creek marks the border between Madison and Garrard Counties in Kentucky.

Notice the doric columns that are brick covered with stucco.
