New Vlog: A look at historic log cabins in Danville, Kentucky

Constitution Square in Danville, Kentucky, hosts an important collection of historic log cabins

The cabins, all pre-dating 100, includes the old Kentucky State Jail, which briefly held the notorious killers who are known as America’s first serial killers, Micajah and Wiley Harpe, the Harpe brothers. The Harpes escaped the jail in 1799, before they could be tried for their crimes. They probably weren’t brothers, maybe cousins, but outside of their brutal murder spree across the south, not much is known about the two North Carolina natives of Scottish descent.
