Stamping Ground was named for noise – the stamping of thousands of hooves of impatient buffalo waiting to drink from Buffalo Spring. This bowl-shaped basin set amidst rich farmland is one of Kentucky's three major "Stamping Grounds" sitting at the junction of trails used by migrating herds.

In 1775, trailblazers Will McConnell and Charles LeCompte discovered Buffalo Spring and called it Buffalo Stamping Ground . It is located on an ancient migratory path the Native Americans called alant-i-wamiowee, or buffalo path – a wide swath of land cut into the forest that has left a permanent imprint at the spring. Also used by the Mount Builders and, later, pioneer settlers, it is likely the roadbed that forms the way toward Georgetown.
