Cloverport, originally a pioneer community called Joe’s Landing, was established by Joe Huston in 1798 and renamed Cloverport in 1828. Huston operated a ferry across the Ohio River, the first along this portion of the river, at the mouth of Clover Creek. Tar Springs, a fashionable nineteenth century spa, was located four miles from Cloverport. As settlement grew in the region, the state legislature established a toll road between Cloverport and Bowling Green in 1821. Click here for additional info.
