Locust Grove, Louisville
(4.5/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice tour, very informative and definitely worth a trip. I visit Louisville all the time and have for 20 years to see family, but never went. So glad I did....great history!
  • The only time I have been to Locust Grove is for the Jane Austen festival, but the grounds and the house are very nice and the festival was wonderful. I am not in the Louisville are, but will definitely be making another trip to visit.
  • I've been attending LG since I was 3 or 4, and every time I go, I can't help but feel at home. The festivals and the reinactments are my favorite parts, as they are fun and interactive ways to learn about the history of the home.
  • Beautiful landmark, park, and staff. Lots of open space along the hillside.
  • Xclent visit. Great staff at the entrance, very helpful and friendly. Tour guide distinguished gentleman Bob was so very knowledgeable about the entire site. He explained not only the history of the site but also the history of the times. His explanations of the acquisitions and procurements filled on the missing information. The short train squall will not dampen the spirits of the wedding party there.
