Hunt-Morgan House


The Hunt-Morgan House and gardens, located in Lexington, Kentucky, is a Federalist-style house that was built in 1814 by John Wesley Hunt.  It is reminiscent of the days when Lexington was known for its affluent lifestyle.  Today, it serves as a Civil War museum.

After you tour the museum, you can visit the small, but lovely garden which features hydrangeas and a gazebo. It is often used as the setting for wedding pictures.  In fact, the entire facility can be rented for weddings.

The museum is open from March 1 through mid December.  Tours are offered Wednesday - Friday and Sunday from 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM each hour.  On Saturday,tours are from 10:00 - 3:00 PM.  There is a small admission fee.


  1. There appears to be a lot of gardens in Kentucky!

    1. Yes, there are. And many of them are attached to historical sites.

  2. Visiting the house would be as fun as the garden.

  3. Civil War museums are very interesting. Throw in a little garden too - a bonus!

  4. I bet it would be beautiful for weddings.
