Description 

"Henry Skaggs and two companions trapping beaver, winter 1770-71, were probably first white men in the area. Named Long Hunters due to long period away from home in the East. Came through Cumberland Gap, 1769, in party led by James Knox. Skaggs' group left the main party to spend the winter here. Friendly with the Indians, Skaggs brought many pioneers here later."
