Road trippin': Farmington

1 post in this topic

The second of three cultural attractions in Kentucky that American Byways is covering for March and April, Farmington was the center of a 550-acre hemp plantation owned by John and Lucy Speed. It features a Federal-styled, Thomas Jefferson-inspired residence. Inside are lavishly decorated rooms restored to reflect the life of the Speed family between 1816 and 1841, while the grounds contain a smokehouse, cabin, ice house, carriage houses, a bountiful garden, blacksmith shop and more. Take a tour of the interior of the glorious residence and watch the page for future updates -- including exterior photography and a peek into the other buildings on the grounds!
