Maysville History

The city of Maysville is the county seat of Mason County. The city was named after John May, landholder. Frontiersman Simon Kenton established his first settlement in the city in the year 1775. Unfortunately he was forced out by the western battles of the American Revolution. In 1784, he returned to build a blockhouse at the site of Maysville and founded Kenton's Station. By the year 1786, the village that grew up in the periphery of Kenton's Station was declared as the town of Washington. During this time John May had acquired the land at Limestone and Daniel Boone. He established a trading post and tavern in the area. In 1787, Maysville was incorporated as a city.
