Locust Grove's volunteers are outstanding! They have received years of training in the history of Kentucky and its place in the nation's history, as well as material culture of the time period. Many docents have also pursued more in-depth knowledge in antiques, architecture, military history, and historic occupations on their own and they are always happy to share. If we don't know the answer to your question, we probably know someone who does!
