Unfolding the Story: The Enslaved at Locust Grove

About this experience

Experience the other side of Locust Grove as you accompany the Croghan family’s enslaved laundress and enslaved distillery assistant throughout the house and outbuildings as they go about their daily routines. This 90-minute tour will immerse you in the year 1816 as you witness the sights, smells, and sounds of a 19th century farm all while learning about lives and stories of the enslaved individuals at Locust Grove. This program will cover the realities and truths of enslaved life in 19th century Kentucky.
Unfolding the Story takes place inside on both stories of the historic house, and outside in and around the historic outbuildings. The experience is about 90 minutes of walking and standing, with some seating available. For questions or accommodations, please call 502.897.9845.

Metro Louisville requires face masks be worn in Metro Parks and Recreation buildings, including Locust Grove, or when social distancing is not possible outside.
