Fodor's Expert Review Daly Mansion
Copper king Marcus Daly's 24,000-square-foot, 56-room Daly Mansion, with 25 bedrooms, 15 baths, and five Italian marble fireplaces, is the showplace of Hamilton, and is undergoing a $1.7 million ongoing renovation to preserve its history and elegance. The Georgian Revival–style house is open to the public, and tours run on the hour. There's also a printed walking guide available to the extensive grounds. The Kids in the Garden event is held in August. Frequent festivities at the mansion include crafts shows and a Kentucky Derby Gala that celebrates Daly's dedication to racehorses. Call the chamber of commerce or the mansion to learn about events.
