Augusta Real Estate
After the Revolutionary War, Captain Philip Buckner was awarded a land-grant by the State of Virginia in reward for his service. After making his first visit to the area in 1781, Buckner returned fifteen years later with 40 other families to settle in the town he called Augusta (named, it is believed, in honor of his home in Augusta County, Virginia).
Across the street from the original court house, is the historic 1811 Jail, which is believed to be Kentucky's oldest jail still remaining on its original foundation. Visitors may tour the 1811 jail by contacting the Tourism Office.
