What does history mean to you? For us here in Kentucky, history is something that we continue to live out and celebrate every day; it’s not an event relegated to the past. From the Old Talbott Tavern and My Old Kentucky Home, two historic Bardstown legends, to the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site, one of the most famous Civil War sites in the South, history is alive and well in the Bluegrass. Just outside Louisville, there is a homestead that’s as historic as it is hauntingly beautiful, and it makes for a delightful day trip during the fall in Kentucky.

Have you explored Locust Grove before? This hauntingly beautiful homestead in Louisville, Kentucky, is a wonderful day trip destination anytime of the year, but especially in the fall.
