I was unaware of this place until I went there on a tour. I expected a dilapidated house from what I had read, but most of it was in really good shape. The tour was excellent and the house itself was beautiful. The guy who did our tour was also really good. Seeing the slave quarters was pretty eye-opening when... More

I went for the Christmas open house. The house was decorated beautifully and the volunteers really love the house. Unfortunately it laid in disrepair for so long it will take a fortune to bring it back to what it once was but worth a visit and every dollar helps.

This is a must see for anyone interested in southern history. We... More

Don't get your hopes up: this is no Mount Vernon or Monticello. The structure is in poor shape (a nearby Gothic barn has already collapsed), but local efforts are making some progress in preservation, if not restoration. Open for special occasions, the house is an authentic Southern mansion on a grand scale. If you have the chance to visit, take... More

A great old Greek revival mansion of the old plantation days . One of the few still in existence and a true KY treasure.

Beautiful Greek Revival Mansion. It has many outstanding features, but the staircase is fabulous. Makes for a great day trip to Georgetown and then on to downtown.

I visited this home about 5 years ago. Then, it was very new in the process of restoration. Today, my family and I went back and I can see a lot of time and work has been put into this project to keep this monument alive. They are still in the early phases of restoration and I look forward to... More
