Long Description:
Two blocks west is the grave of this renowned frontiersman and Goodlettsville's first citizen. Coming first to the Cumberland Settlements in 1770, he returned in 1780 and built his fort one-half mile north on Mansker's Creek. He repeatedly fought marauding Indians to protect the first white settlers of this region and was made a colonel in the frontier militia. He lived the remainder of his life at his fort which was called Mansker's Station.
