Ashland the Estate of Henry Clay (Fayette County)

It is interesting to note that Henry Clay never actually resided in the residence that may be seen today. The former residence (1806-1811) was damaged, possibly as a result of an earthquake, and his son rebuilt the residence as seen today on the same foundation. Thus, the historical significance is mostly attributable to the grounds and ancillary buildings that Henry Clay actually used.

James F. Bailey of Bailey Appraisal Service has appraised all three of these historically significant properties.

Ward Hall (Scott County)

Arguably the largest and grandest example of Greek Revival design in Kentucky, Ward Hall was built for Junius Ward in the 1850’s, and designed by locally noted architect Thomas Lewinski. Unique construction items included a large cooper tank in the roof that supplied water, and a coquina stone foundation. At one time Ward Hall was offered to the Kentucky Legislature to be the State Capitol.

Woodburn Farm (Woodford County)

Purchased in 1790 by Robert Alexander, Woodburn Farm gained national prominence as a thoroughbred nursery operation. His son, Robert Aitcheson Alexander was a significant influence within the industry. Noted studs to stand at Woodburn include “Lexington”.
