Locust Grove Review

This redbrick Georgian plantation house was built around 1790 by William and Lucy Croghan, who was George Rogers Clark's sister (the Revolutionary War hero and founder of Louisville lived here during the last nine years of his life). The 55-acre grounds include eight outbuildings and restored gardens; the last tour departs at 3:30.

    Beautiful grounds, historic tour and an antiques market!

    On the last Sunday of June and September, beautiful Historic Locust Grove not only offers its regular tours but also holds an open air antiques market. For $6 per person, you get two deals for the price of one: a house tour where George Rogers Clark lived out his final years and admission to a fabulous antiques market that surrounds the gorgeous front and side lawns. Great way to spend a day.
