Wilderness Road State Park consists of about 310 acres that lie along the Wilderness Road, a route carved by Daniel Boone in 1775. The route, which followed a buffalo trace, opened America’s first western frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion built in 1877, and Martin's Station, a replica of a colonial frontier fort that was built near what is now the town of Rose Hill by Joseph Martin in 1775.
