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

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.
