The History of Elizabethtown
Established in 1797, Elizabethtown’s central location was to become a key part of the community’s identity.

A cannonball fired during General Morgan’s campaign can still be found embedded in the wall of the Depp House. Another famous military man, General George Custer was stationed in Elizabethtown in the 1870’s as part of an effort to suppress members of the Ku Klux Klan.
