Owner description: The Jack Jouett House Historic Site is a historic house museum owned and operated by the Woodford County Fiscal Court. It was the home of Captain John (Jack) Jouett, Jr., the Revolutionary War hero whose 40-mile ride through the backcountry of Virginia most likely saved American Independence. In Kentucky, Jack was a legislator, farmer, horse breeder, and distiller. Jack’s wife was Sally Robards Jouett. Their son, Matthew Harris Jouett (one of the 19th century’s most gifted and well-known portraitists), grew up in the home. The museum is open April through October on Fridays (noon-5), Saturdays (10-5), Sundays (1-5), and Mondays (10-noon) and by appointment all year. The frontier homestead includes a 1780’s stone cabin, used as a kitchen by the Jouetts, and a 1797 Federal-style brick house with parlor, dining room, and three bedrooms. The grounds feature a Colonial Herb Garden, a Native Tree Walk, and a Woodford County Quilt Trail quilt square.

this visit was fun and i learned a lot abut the civil war and the the are of Versailles. I don't want to give a lot away by this review. this was a lot of fun, very personal I notice that a lot of the facts were geared around things that interested me the most. also I loved that it was free.
