My Old Kentucky Home is one of the most famous songs to have ever been written, but it is also the name of a hallowed and beautiful Kentucky farm with many rich layers of history waiting to be explored and experienced. My Old Kentucky Home is a marvel of elegance and charm, as architecturally magnificent today as it was more than two centuries ago. Your guided house by our costumed guides spans two floors of the mansion, originally named "Federal Hill." On select days, our talented guides will sing the song, "My Old Kentucky Home," for tour guests. See 170 year old antique artifacts including paintings, high-style furniture, lavish period decor, and the carefully curated interiors of Kentucky's most famous landmark.

We passed this on our way to some of the local distilleries and decided to stop when we had some time. We only took the outdoor tour for $3 and got access to walk the grounds. It was such a nice day and we strolled...More

We had a great round here one afternoon. Played unrushed. Had the place nearly to ourselves save for a few of the locals (squirrels, ducks, woodchucks, deer).
