This home was the inspiration for the Stephen Foster song, My Old Kentucky Home. It is furnished with almost all the original furnishings from the Rowan family and has recently been renovated to restore the original paint colors and wallpaper patterns. It is a beautiful home and a great example of classic Georgian architecture combined with Federal.
At the end of the day we headed downtown to see the historic buildings. This tavern was the original stage stop and is currently a tavern, restaurant, and bed and breakfast. We also visited the Museum of Whiskey History and learned more about all the local families and distilleries.
