Floyd's Station was a fort on Beargrass Creek in what is now St. Matthews, Kentucky. In November of 1779 James John Floyd built cabins and a stockade near what is now Breckenridge Lane.[1] In 1783, John Floyd, future Governor of Virginia was born in the Station. The pioneer father was killed by Indians twelve days before the birth.[2] The station was one of six on Beargrass Creek and was involved in local conflict with native Americans in the area for the next five years.[3] All that remain today of Floyd's Station are a spring house and cemetery.[4]
