Farmington Plantation Home and Gardens

The Farmington House and Gardens are located in Louisville, Kentucky.  This red brick Federalist style mansion was the childhood home of Joshua Fry Speed, who is considered to be Abraham Lincoln's closest friend.  In fact, one of the interesting facts about this place is that Abraham Lincoln slept here.  The other interesting fact is that it was designed by Thomas Jefferson.

The eighteen acres surrounding the house contain many formal gardens, as well as an apple orchard.  It's really a nice place to visit!

Hours are Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM, and Sunday from 1:30 PM to 4:30 PM.  Admission for adults is $9.00, and $4.00 for children.
