In 1784, 30-odd Dutch Huguenot families purchased 10,000 acres in the area of northern Kentucky. There, they built a fort about 1.5 miles from present day Pleasureville. It was known as “The Dutch Tract,” and as the story goes, the town’s name came about from a visitor commenting what a pleasure it was to stay with such pleasant townspeople.
This story was also detailed in an autobiography of Isaac Newton LeCompte in 1919, where he noted, “My Great Uncle, Major Joe LeCompte, who was a politician as well as a soldier, upon his rounds as a candidate for Congress (he was elected four terms) frequently passed through this village and upon one occasion he remarked that every time he passed through he heard the men whistling and the woman singing and suggested that the town should be named Pleasureville, and so it was.” Others say the area of the post office housed a bordello (at the site of the later Pleasureville Hotel and a present-day apartment building).
