The History of Our Real Estate Market Spans More Than 18,000 Years
The first modern people who settled in the Somerset area included Chickamauga Cherokee Shawnee Indians who settled in territory that was settled by prehistoric peoples 18,000 years ago. They established homes near vast hunting grounds that overlooked the Cumberland River.
The first American settlers arrived in the area from New Jersey in 1798. Many of them established farms, stores and boarding houses that played an important role in
our economy for more than 175 years.
Interest in our homes for sale
was revitalized in the middle of the 20th century after the United States Army Corps of Engineers created Wolf Creek Dam and Lake Cumberland
in 1952. Many people who purchased properties during this time included outdoor enthusiasts discovered the value of Lake Cumberland's fishing spots, hiking trails and canoe routes.
Our properties now offer a peaceful atmosphere, a friendly environment and access to many popular outdoor attractions. These benefits offer our homebuyers
many benefits that are a tremendous value in Kentucky's realty market.
