The cemetery is on the east side of the road and dates to 1825. William Brown first came to Kentucky in 1782 and stayed at Fort Harrod. After his brother James was killed at the massacre at Blue Licks, William returned to Virginia. William returned to Kentucky in 1790 and settled just north of Phillips Fort. Among his neighbors were Jacob and James Larue, Conrad Walters, Isom Enlow, Robert Hodgen, Conrad Kastor, Phillip Phillips and Joseph Kirkpatrick. The Filson Club has some of William Brown's papers.
