Overview
More
Built in 1790, Locust Grove, a three story brick Georgian home, is the final home of General George Rogers Clark, the founder of Louisville, and conqueror of the Old Northwest Territory. The house was built by his sister Lucy Croghan and her husband William Croghan who raised 8 children here and hosted their brother William Clark, of Lewis and Clark fame, as well as Presidents Monroe, Jackson and Taylor, Vice President Arron Burr, statesmen such as Cassius Clay, and several artists including John James Audubon. This National Historic Landmark has been restored to reflect the elegance of General Clark's time at Locust Grove. The 55 acres of gardens, fields and woodlands are open for exploration daily.

Though Blankenbaker lane is a bit off the beaten path, you simply must see this "gem of history'! A well run historic tour, museum, and gift shop are part of the experience, as well as a great picnic area and gardens/grounds to explore- weather permitting....More

This was a beautiful home, the grounds we big. Little disappointed on the gardens, not having them look as Lush as stated on site. Better care of them could be done. But the overall experience should be taken by anyone visiting in the Louisville area....More
