Stopped here on the way back to camp, the staff were super friendly and helpful. There is a house tour, but it's an hour long, too long for my 3 and 4 year old to behave. But you can do a self guided tour of the grounds for free, which was a nice 30 min stroll for us. Great, convenient... 更多
You would never know while driving down Bardstown Road that Farmington Historic Site is hidden whims a tree- lined area. Once you are there it is as if the city doesn't exist. It's quiet and peaceful. From time to time there are art fairs,etc., such as today. During this time there are free tours of the house. The only cost... 更多
Another site for Lincolnphiles to visit. The place where A. Lincoln saw slavery up close & personal while visiting the Speed family plantation which had about 50-60 slaves. A bit hard to find but worth the effort. Our docent was great & there were only 4 of us on the tour.
Elegant 1816 Federal style hemp plantation home of John & Lucy Speed and 13 children. The 14 rooms of the house were perfectly proportioned and included two octagonal rooms. There is also a 19th century vegetable garden and a gorgeous flower bed, along with a stone springhouse, barn, and blacksmith shop to see. The family history is quite interesting especially... 更多
Farmington Historic Home was a disappoint across the board. It is stuck between University of Louisville and a neighborhood with little property. We walked in to the visitor center and the employee acted surprised that we were there and said we just missed a tour. She did not offer to get us into that tour and was nor the least... 更多
We were given a guided tour of this plantation home where Abraham Lincoln once stayed. You entered the grounds through an long tree tunnel, which I found to be impressive. The layout of the house is based on a Thomas Jefferson design. The guide/docent was knowledgeable about every detail of the home. We were taken back in time. The restoration... 更多
We visited Farmington on Saturday. on the website it said they were open from Tuesday to Saturday 10 am to 4 pm. We went to Farmington and arrived when another family did. they have a self guiding tour and a beautiful garden. Someone was setting up for a wedding. No one was in the welcome center. It was about 1:00... 更多
We had my daughters wedding and reception here. We got the use of the entire grounds and buildings. It was a beautiful setting. Even some deer off in the woods were seen. Highly recommend this for a wedding.
I visited Farmington Historic Home today. Our group was divided into 2 groups. The group I was not in had a guide who started before us and ended up after us, and I couldn't help but feel like I was missing something! Our guide was asked several questions, and she honestly answered that she didn't know the answers, but perhaps... 更多
