Alexandria by Campbell County Historical and Genealogical Society
Book DescriptionAlexandria, the garden spot of Campbell County, is located in the upper area of the Bluegrass State. Its surrounding farmland seemed filled with promise as new settlers began arriving from Virginia and neighboring states in the late 1700s. Following the Revolutionary War, pioneer Frank Spilman came to the area after hearing reports of dense forests and plentiful wild animals. Naming the settlement after his hometown of Alexandria, Virginia, Spilman graciously left 12 acres of land to be reserved for the town of Alexandria upon his death in 1828. Following the town s incorporation in 1834, the citizens erected the city s courthouse in 1840, establishing Alexandria as the seat of Campbell County. This book takes readers on a tour of the town s past, its original frame houses and churches, log cabin homes, farm life, and the events and attractions of the famous Alexandria Fair."
