The area was first settled by William Glenn in 1797, who was originally from Nelson County and was the son of celebrated Indian fighter and Kentucky pioneer David Glenn. William would later serve as colonel of the local "cornstalk" militia following the War of 1812 as well as a representative in the state legislature in 1817 and sheriff of Daviess County from 1821 to 1823.
According to legend, an early settler was paid a barrel of whiskey to name the town after H. T. Curd, a steamboat captain on the nearby Green River.
