Historic Locust Grove, Louisville

4.7
#5 of 15 in Historic Sites in Louisville
Locust Grove tells the story of General George Rogers Clark, conqueror of the old Northwest Territory, William and Lucy Clark-Croghan founders of Locust Grove, their brother William Clark of Lewis and Clark fame, and the slaves who lived and worked here.

The ca. 1790 Georgian mansion, recently re-restored to near its original appearance, is the centerpiece to the 55 rolling acres of fields, woodlands, gardens and farm buildings. Be sure to stop by the Visitor Center to see the ever-changing merchandise in the museum store; the visitor center museum features early Louisville, pioneer Kentucky and the American Revolutionary wars - all three of them.

This site is always busy with tours, special events, weddings, camps, workshops and classes for kids and adults. Call 502-897-9845 for more information.

  • My daughter loved running around on the grounds and running around the trees. Great spot for a family get together or a picnic in the grass. The house tour was interesting as well. I was recommended visiting by Townsend & Sons, glad to have made the trip here while in Kentucky.
  • Enjoyed picnic with my 5 year old on the grounds. Fun place to explore. Can't wait to visit again! And the volunteers are so friendly and welcoming. And the fencing demo was my son's favorite part of the day!
