Locust Grove

Locust Grove

Today, the site includes the Georgian house, the original smoke house and eight other stone and log supporting farm buildings, formal quadrant gardens, herb, perennial and annual beds, woods, and surrounding meadows. The house is furnished with some of the finest examples of Kentucky-crafted furniture, portraits, prints, textiles, domestic objects and select artifacts originally belonging to the Clark and Croghan families. The extensive new museum gallery displays artifacts and information about the American Revolution in this region, the life of George Rogers Clark, daily life for the Clark and Croghan families, and photos of restoration work.

We hope you enjoy our work.
