Visit this 3-acre, open-air park museum to learn some important history about Danville, Kentucky.

Constitution Square Historic Site is the smallest state park and the birthplace of Kentucky's statehood. Mature trees provide shade as you explore the original and reconstructed buildings. Walk on the pathways and read the plaques that describe Danville's rich history. There is a great picnic area here, too. There is a courthouse, a jail, a meeting house, and a post office located here. The courthouse housed 10 constitutional conventions between 1785 and 1792. You can take time to explore the cabins where the Kentucky Constitution was drafted. There is a statue of 2 friends in the center of a circle of plaques, with there being one plaque for each Kentucky governor. The friends depict the state seal which represents the motto "United We Stand, Divided We Fall."

Open from July - October

Monday - Friday 10 am - 4, Saturday 10 am - 1 pm
