We went for their Christmas Open House. It was decorated beautifully. The docents were knowledgeable and helpful. The old house still needs much repair but is still beautiful and the funds will help in the restoration. They really need a donor with deep pockets to help preserve this "diamond in the rough". Maybe that is you.

This is an extraordinary house, with an unusual history. It is not yet restored but is perhaps more evocative in its unrestored state. It would be impossible to visit this house and not be astonished. Very memorable experience.

We've been twice and took my sister on her most recent visit. She took over 100 pictures of the details of the house. The volunteer was very knowledgable and told lots of interesting stories. For $5, it's a bargain!

Wow! What a sight to see! An unbelievable history filled home. Nothing in the tour of the home is off limits from the basement to the attic on the fourth floor!! The house has been stripped down to its barest beauty awaiting restoration to its original glory by the dedicated volunteers. Join the grand endeavor to restore this monumental piece... More

We called the phone # listed and the tour guide that answered informed us the days they were open. We were disappointed and told him we had hoped they were open today. He immediately agreed to meet us and open the property for a private tour for myself, my mother and my daughter. He took us through each room of... More

Not able to get inside, but the grounds are open and you can roam freely. I would like to have seen the interior so suggest you get in touch with them about visit hours.

Ward Hall was closed, so we simply drove up the driveway for a closer look. The house could be MAGNIFICIENT. We are hoping they have enough funds to begin renovation before it's too late. Brochures and photos we saw are much more complimentary than reality. That poor, amazing structure is in bad need of repair. I peeked in the back... More

Great history. I didn't know about this place. It has been restored nicely. It's great to happen upon places like this in your travels. America, what a great country.

Ward Hall is located in Scott County, Kentucky. About 30 minutes outside of Lexington. This historic location is an example of a Greek Revival antebellum mansion. Beautiful candlelight tours at Christmas. Complete with tour guides dressed in time period costumes. Check their website for directions and times open.

This historical home is beautiful if you can catch a candlelight tour during Christmas. Great holiday treat
