This chapter interprets the site of Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park built to commemorate the settlers who fought and died in the Battle of Blue Licks in 1782. The Kentucky Department of Parks built a new lodge here for overnight guests with conference and dining rooms. The lodge is named for Marvin Lewis “Pete” Worthington who served as a representative in the state legislature from 1978 to 2000.
