Steubenville, Kentucky
Steubenville, Kentucky

Steubenville is a Wayne county community about five miles northeast of Monticello on what was the Monticello-Burnside Turnpike. (The turnpike was constructed from 1876 to 1900.) It was probably settled before 1800 and might have been originally known as Pleasant Grove. The name Steubenville may be from Friedrich von Steuben, who trained Washington's troops during the Revolution. An Oak Forest post office opened in 1842, probably about one mile northeast, and moved to the town and was renamed Steubenville in 1851. It closed in 1854 and opened again in 1871. It closed in 1995.
