About The McGee House

The McGee House was built in 1850 by John McGee III, great grandson of John McGee the pioneer. The McGee family originated in Scotland; was later found in Irelend and was one of the first families to come to North America.

John McGee I was born about 1730 and died in 1810. He came to what is now known as Mercer County with Robert McAfee. John McGee fought in the battle of Point Pleasant in 1774 and served with Va. Volunteer Militia during the Revolutionary War.

The McGee House is located a few miles from the famous Fort Harrod, the first permanent Kentucky settlement.

In 1979, T.A. and Marybeth Green bought the McGee House. -Col. George Chinn* USMC (Retired) told them:

"There weren't but three owners of this land, God, the indians, and the McGee's. And now you."

*Chinn was a famous machine gun and military weapons innovator.
