Here was one of the four defense posts established to protect emigrant parties moving westward. Approximately five miles south of London, Modrel's Station offered safety for about a year, during 1793-94, until the Indian menace ended. Robert Modrel was later active in settlement of Somerset and represented Pulaski County in Ky. House of Representatives.
