If you aren't interested in history, this place is worth a visit just for the aesthetic. The house was gorgeous, and the scenery around it was just as beautiful! I would be satisfied to just live in the cooking building. Unfortunately, I did not get to tour the inside, but I imagine it's gorgeous. Aside from that, there is a... More

This place was so beautiful that it almost made me want to go back in time to live there. This is how I want my house to look. I hope that next time I am able to go when it is open so that I can actually take the tour.

Even though my group of friends and U were not able to have a tour because it was closed during our visit, the surrounding landscape and buildings were prestige. I have heard good things about how significant White Hall is to the community of Berea and I will soon return during their hours of operation to learn more about Cassius... More

This place is so beautiful! I highly recommend going to this house because of the historic content and beautiful scenery. The house itself was home to Cassius Marcellus Clay in 1799. It was remodeled in the 1860's and it still has the ice house, slave quarters, and separate kitchen building. If you are looking for a historic and fun getaway... More

A beautiful and historic part of Kentucky culture. Unfortunately they seem to be closed a lot, but even when they are it is still possible to walk around the house and enjoy the estate

Beautiful historical site with a deep and amazing memory of the past. The castle is huge and amazing, it's shocking that it was built so long ago yet it still stands strong. I was more intrigued by the ancient kitchen and ice house. Till now, I still wonder how it is that the buildings have made it this far yet... More

This is a beautiful home, and there is much to learn from the signs alone posted around the grounds. Cassius Clay was a very influential landowner in the areas of Richmond and Berea, and it was interesting learning about his home life and how he continually influenced those areas. The tour times can become inconvenient, so it is important to... More

It has been awhile since we visited, but I wanted to make sure to let others know how much this house is worth for a visit. The history of the house and its occupants is a must see. A famously rich land owner, a Russian diplomat in the time of Tsars, and an Emancipation Proclamation author. So interesting. These were... More

I have toured here four times total.I went twice at Christmas and it was absolutely beautiful.The decorations alone were awesome and the furnishings a must see for anyone who enjoys antiques. I saw a play performed there twice and enjoyed that very much. If you are in the area, i highly recommend you take the time to go.
