The Ashland was built circa 1806 for statesman Henry Clay and his wife Lucretia. Originally, the grand two-story brick mansion served as the couple?s country home. Three years later, the couple permanently moved in with their growing family. Listed as a National Historic Landmark, the Ashland Estate contains eighteen rooms in total and with each and every room open for visits to fully explore. All visitors are entertained with a full-service guide and a complete tour of the mansion will take about fifty minutes. One of the highlights of the tour includes a visit to the Henry Clay exhibit room and shopping for souvenirs at the Museum Store. Visitors may also enjoy self-guided tours and walking trails along any of the mansion?s outbuildings and formal garden. There?s also the Ginkgo Tree Cafe for those who wish to enjoy a meal at the site.
