The John Fitch Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution was named for inventor John Fitch, the most prominent scientist of early Bardstown. He came to Bardstown in 1780 as a surveyor and here he spent the last days of his life. In 1927 the Congress of the United States made a belated public acknowledgement of the priority of Fitch's claim to the invention of the steamboat by erecting a $15,000.00 monument over his grave on Court Square in Bardstown.
