Less than 8 miles northeast from Downtown Mount Vernon, you'll find yourself walking along the quaint streets of Fredericktown.
Settled in 1807, a year before Knox County was established, this charming town offers small town amenities, friendly businesses and a sense of feeling “at home”. If you are looking for a day away, Fredericktown offers a variety of activities, things to do and see for the weekend getaway couple or the road tripping family.

Start your day with a stop in the Homestead Family Restaurant. Find a cozy booth and make sure you order the pancake(s). We'd recommend splitting one for the table because they're larger than life!
As the afternoon sun rises and temperatures heat up, you're going to want to head to Fredericktown's newest attraction, Kokosing Park! This 1,200 square foot splash pad is open to the public, boasting brand new restrooms, tables with shade umbrellas, park benches, new landscaping and much more.
Recently, Amanda Strater, owner and operator of Plus One Photography, enjoyed an afternoon at the park capturing plenty of splashes and smiles among the visitors.
