Located on the North Fork of the Kentucky River, William T. Haney founded the community in 1897 as "Gourd". The Louisville and Nashville Railroad came through in 1912, and is said to have named a station after a line in the poem Lord Ullin's Daughter by Thomas Campbell, which the community adopted as its name.
