  • One of the premier events of Derby Season, Bourbon & Browns at Liberty Hall Historic Site celebrates the historical contributions of the family of Senator John Brown, Kentucky's first US Senator after becoming a state, and the significance of bourbon and it's history in Kentucky. The annual fundraiser benefits the historic Liberty Hall site which includes the Orlando Brown House, Senator John Brown's son, and 4 acres of sprawling gardens. Bourbon tastings, bluegrass music, a live & silent auctions, as well as appetizers and food, cap off the evening and help transport the attendees back to a simpler time in Kentucky's history.
  • Absolutely a wonderful tour to add to your trip. Our tour guide, Megan was very knowledgeable and very patient with our questions we had! Orlando Brown House is very worth seeing, it's part of the tour. Thank you for having our family!
