Morehead is a home rule-class city located along US 60 (the historic Midland Trail) and Interstate 64 in Rowan County, Kentucky, in the United States. The city was named after James T Morehead, a politician who served as governor of Kentucky from 1834 to 1836. In 1854, Morehead became the third community to be settled in the county. It was the focal point of theRowan County War and is the home of Morehead State University. In the 1920s, the city refocused its efforts towards fire clay extraction amidst the dwindling prices of timber. In July 1939, a number of business and hotels located on Mainstreet were caught in a raging fire following Independence Day celebrations which went awry. At least 25 people died, and thousands had to receive vaccinations for Typhoid fever. An agreement with the Sisters of Notre Dame in Covington, Kentucky in which the sisters would assume responsibility for operating the proposed hospital was reached in July 1963. Morehead also sought to capitalize on tourism by ameliorating its natural attractions through Cave Run and Lake Hiking in the 1960s and 1970s. In 1974, tourism in the city was greatly improved in the 1970s and 1980s. It is the seat of Rowan State University, which was established as an indirect result of the feud between two factions of the MartinTolliverLogan Feud in the 1880s. The town was officially incorporated in 1869. One of the first transcontinental auto trails in the US, the Midland trail, was connected to Morehead in 1929.
