Liberty Hall Historic Site and Gardens



Liberty Hall Historic Site and Gardens is located in Frankfort, Kentucky.  The gardens cover nearly three acres and are on the grounds of a Federalist-style mansion.  (There are a lot of these types of mansions in Kentucky!)

It features the largest formal boxwood garden in Kentucky.  It also has many beautiful perennial and annual borders, and a large variety of roses.

The house is currently closed to the public, but it will reopen on March 15, 2013.  The gardens are free and open to the public from dawn to dusk.  Tour prices to view the house will be $4.00 for adults and $1.00 for children.

  4. That is the vacation home of my dreams! All I need now is a glass of sweet tea and a staff of landscapers to keep it looking that way :D

    1. Good question - I probably should've included it in my post. The house was built by John Brown in 1796. Mr. Brown was very involved in creating the state of Kentucky - he introduced the bill granting its statehood.
