Ward Hall is thought to be the most intact antebellum home in the south. The entire home is shown on a tour, basement to attic. No areas are off-limits to visitors! The tour guides are very informative and welcome questions from visitors. A true treasure!...More

Wow, what a house! This Kentucky Gem is located just outside of the city of Georgetown. Ward Hall was built in 1856 as a very large summer home. It is unusual as it is three room deep off a center hall. This home is owned...More

I will visit again in 5 years to see all the restoration this place has planned. Even in it's current state there is so much about the mansion to appreciate. The guide made the tour a history lesson!

This tour is great for kids who are interested in history. Small children get bored very quickly, so I would advise not to bring them. As parents, you may want to go to the Ward Hall web site for some background... More
