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

But that's a good thing. Exquisite Greek Revival mansion with its original plaster-work, woodwork, you name it. You'll need to check when it's open for touring, but it's well worth it. The decor is not as flashy as Federal Hill in Bardstown or Locust Grove in Louisville, both earlier buildings, but the local preservation group is working hard to match... More

If you like old classical plantation houses this will be one of your best tours. You may have to call the number on the sign in the driveway to set up an appointment, but trust me its worth it. We called the guy and he came out that evening to let us tour the plus, and he let us take... More

Ward Hall is open for tours only the first weekend of every month. The tour guides are very knowledgeable about the history of this home. Keep in mind that this house has not been restored in any way; it is at the beginning process of being preserved so it looks a little run down. The furniture inside is the original... More
