  • Visited Waveland for the first time today. The tour was excellent. The guide was dressed in period dress and was very knowledgeable. She even showed us her layers of under garments - never expected that! I loved seeing the Bible with the names of family member’s marriage dates with one of them dated 2003. There was hair jewelry and other interesting artifacts. I loved everything about this place. I will definitely go back for other events.
  • A great historic place in Lexington, KY. Civil War area mansion, old cabins and lots of history. Live re-enacting adds to it. There is a fee, but it is definitely worth it! Great place for family photo shoots, scenery photography and more.
