This c.1792 Georgian mansion tells the story of its first owners William and Lucy Clark Croghan and the enslaved people who lived and worked here, and the story of America's beginnings. The Croghans along with Lucy’s brother, General George Rogers Clark, welcomed a generation of American luminaries to their home. Presidents James Monroe and Andrew Jackson, Aaron Burr, John James Audubon, Cassius Marcellus Clay, and Lewis and Clark—among others—all passed through Locust Grove. Now a National Historic Landmark, Locust Grove is a unique example of early Kentucky architecture, craftsmanship, and history.
