I heard about the Ward Hall Mansion on the PBS station KET, on a program called Kentucky Life. This is a good "one tank" trip from Cincinnati. Ward Hall Mansion is in the city of Georgetown, KY, just off I-75. Easy to get to. This...More
This House is just amazing. The foundation that now owns it is trying to raise money to restore it, so bare with them when it comes to chipping paint, ceilings, etc. Ron was our tour guide, and happened to be the chair of our foundation...More

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
Took some visiting relatives to visit Ward Hall and everyone enjoyed the tour. Ages ranged from 12 to 54. Even the 18 year old loved the tour and was amazed at the home and the history. I hope they can raise the money to finish...More
Living in Georgetown my whole life I've passed ward hall by so many times. A friend and I decided to go last minute. Absolutely in awe. The tour included the whole house with stories of previous owners and family. The guide was passionate about the...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

Stumbled onto this lovely place while we were in Georgetown to visit the antique shops. Absolutely fantastic. Our guide, Connie, was a joy, and the love she has for Ward Hall came through in the wonderful commentary she gave about the history, the current situation,...More

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 information for the children to read. Parents may want to take their kids to the bathroom before coming, as there are no restrooms (or any plumbing) at Ward Hall. Most children like the tour and are encouraged to ask questions. Many young visitors ask about ghosts! Ward Hall has had a few ghost sightings and there is a slave graveyard near the mansion.
