Phelps family, early settlers of Kentucky with Daniel Boone

Shadrach and Celia Phelps settled on this property in the Esto community of Jamestown, Kentucky in 1798 after having resided at Fort Boonesborough with Daniel Boone to aid in the settlement of Kentucky. Shadrach's father, John Phelps was also at the fort.

A two-story log home was originally built on the property next to the natural spring which still exists.

The existing frame home was built in 1875 by John Quincy Phelps and wife Nancy Jane. The home was updated in the 1960s with the current columns and front veranda.

Many renovations and upgrades have been made by family members since.
