As many times as I have been to Frankfort I never had the time to visit this site for some reason. It sits next to the Orlando Brown House where you actually start your tour with a 15 minute video of the Brown family who helped shaped Kentucky's history. This is a beautiful old house(Liberty Hall) with some beautiful original... More

Be sure to visit Frankfort's Liberty Hall Historic Site. There are two homes on the site. Liberty Hall is now renovated on the first floor. It is absolutely lovely and breath taking! An April Event will display gowns from the Titanic and that era. I hear the dresses are exquisite. Check out their website for details! I plan on going... More
