Gorgeous, historic home and gardens nestled in a neighborhood close to downtown. Ashland offers a glimpse back in time at KY in the 19th century (since the original 18th c house was rebuilt in a more modern style after starting to deteriorate). Docents lead paid tours on the hour which are quite informative. The house is lovely and almost all the furniture and decor in the house are original to the family which is incredible since it was sold off and became a school for many years.

Lincoln's Lexington Walking Tour is a great way to spend the day while in Lexington and the Hunt-Morgan House is a must-see stop along the way. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and shared many interesting stories about the house and the family. The house is beautiful with many unique pieces of furniture and memorabilia. Don't miss this stop on the Lincoln Walking Tour.

Students of history know that it's unlikely Abraham Lincoln would have had the political career he did without the shared ambition & savvy of his wife, the former Mary Todd. It was here in this house that she spent much of her young life. Restored beginning in 1976, visitors will walk the same stairs as young Mary & eventually her suitor, Abraham. You will see many family possessions & other artifacts of the time period.
