My family loves this beautiful piece of architectural history in Georgetown, KY. We have visited numerous times and we are never disappointed. The price of a tour is only $5 and it is well worth it. They only take cash. The volunteers are all very knowledgeable, and love to pass their love of the Ward family to visitors. It is... More

We are in the area in vacation and discovered this place on our way to the campground. This is a great way to experience a little bit of what southern high society was like. The house is in need of restoration and the foundation that now owns it are doing a great job. If you gin- ask for Ron -... More

We brought a group of seniors from our church to Kentucky to visit the Ark Encounter and saw Ward Hall on TA. We were not sure if we would be able to work it into our schedule, but Connie graciously stayed in contact with me and was willing to open the house up to us on fairly short notice. It... More

The house is not always open for tours, but it was the weekend I was in town. It is only $5, but make sure you have cash. They do not take credit cards! But they do take checks. Haha This treasure is still under renovation. What is nice about this house is you get up close and personal with period... More

Had drove by Ward Hall many times since I moved to Georgetown 3 years ago. I decided to visit while my daughters were in town. We all love history and really enjoyed the visit. For a nominal fee you are taken on a guided tour and told the story of the house and its owners and all who lived and... More

Proud to have Ward Hall here in our hometown of Georgetown, Kentucky. Great place to have a group reception or wedding. Lot's of history here.

This was a trip for something to do. It became a trip that I am glad I took. Old world charm and a trip to the elite past. You can easily see yourself in your minds eye as you being the owner in the past. I saw our historical past and it was preserved very well. The architecture and furnishings... More

We went and did the Christmas tour. If you are into history and architecture, this tour is a must. The house is beautiful, and one feels like they are stepping back in time. The antique furnishings and attention to detail is extraordinary. This was our first visit, but we plan to return every year in December.

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.
