About Us

Locust Grove, a ca. 1790 Georgian mansion, restored and furnished to its original appearance and situated on 55 rolling acres just up river from downtown Louisville, tells the story of its builders, William and Lucy Clark Croghan. Here, as early settlers, the Croghans raised their family and made welcome General George Rogers Clark, founder of Louisville and conqueror of the Northwest Territory, as well as three presidents of the United States and explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark. Locust Grove, a National Historic Landmark, is a unique example of early Kentucky architecture, craftsmanship and history.
