Located on Rt 119 in Big Chimney, about 8 miles north of Charleston and just south of Exit 5 (Rt 114) on I-79.
I couldn't find much on Simon Kenton except that there is a Scouting Council in southern Ohio and northern Kentucky named the SImon Kenton Council. I don't know what the tie is to the Ohio/Kentucky folks. Sorry.
[EDIT: intothenew just PM'd me a link to a great article on Simon Kenton - Click Here. Thanks!]
