    Historic Homes

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Visitors who enjoy looking at historic houses have several to choose from. Visitors can tour the Mary Todd Lincoln house located on Main Street near Rupp Arena from April to November. The home of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan is open for tours. This is in the Gratz Park Historic district near Transylvania University. The Henry Clay house, known as Ashland (pictured below), and grounds is in a park like setting with a garden and several outbuildings located South of the central business district on Richmond Road has a house and garden that is worth visiting because it has much of the original furnishings.

    Visit the Henry Clay mansion - Ashland. This is perhaps Lexington's best historical site. It is well preserved and offers a wonderful guided tour. Henry Clay is worth knowing about, sadly few today do. He is considered one of the greatest statesmen in the history of the United States. The story of his trip from Kentucky to Washington DC when he became a congressman is particularly fascinating. What now takes 9 hours to drive took Henry Clay much longer.

    Keeneland Racing in April and October
    This is an absolute must-do activity for anyone and everyone wishing to visit Lexington. The races are run throughout the months of April and October and are a definite cultural experience. Churchill Downs is grand but it cannot compare to the beauty of Keeneland. It is reminiscent of the races at Ascot in England. Women adorn often large and noticeable hats, while men too are often dressed to the tee. But casual is the normal attire for a day at the races. Placing bets on the race is fun, but this is a place to see and be seen. Plan on spending a full day here. And don't forget to try the Kentucky bourbon bread pudding.
