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.
