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.

It was just by chance that I came across Ward Hall, and for someone that likes historic landmarks, it was like hitting the lottery. Two steps into the home and I became speechless. It was a WOW moment. Ward Hall is a Greek Revival antebellum plantation mansion located in Georgetown, Kentucky (less than an hour from Lexington). The 12,000-square-foot with... More

This place is amazing. Our tour was so personalized. You could feel his passion. It is not a museum. It is more like a recently opened time capsule. Fabulous!!! If you love historic places you will love it.

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.

When visiting Georgetown KY, you should enquire whether Ward Hall is open. Fortunately, this past weekend we toured this magnificent old home. The local preservation league guide was very informative and gracious. Yes, the home needs work, but "her bones" are a fascinating looks back into KY history. 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.

If you visit historic Georgetown, Kentucky on a weekend take time to visit Ward Hall. Ward Hall is a wonderful Greek Revival Mansion just outside of downtown Georgetown. The people who volunteer as the tour guides are very knowledgeable of the area and the home. The tour includes all 3 floors of the property as well as the basement and... More
