Fort Harrod is an interesting park full of educational history. Not only is this a working fort, with real people demonstrating fort skills such as wood working, blacksmithing and basket weaving, they also tell some stories of the people who "lived" in the fort. I enjoyed the freedom of being to walk through some of the rooms, including one set up as George Rogers Clark office. And for a small fee, it was well worth the price.
Also at the park is the oldest cemetary west of the Appalachians, the cabin purported to be the one in which Lincoln's parents were married, and a museum with many artifacts from the time period.
I was lucky enough to have visited during a re-enactment of a civil war battle. If you're interested in knowing when another re-enactment may take place, I would suggest you check out the events page at http://www.parks.ky.gov
