There was a time when Barboursville stood as one of the finest homes in the region. Unfortunately, on Christmas Day of 1884, the house was nearly all consumed by fire.

Whether you’re there for a fascinating glimpse of the ancient octagon-shaped home or the vintage wine, you’ll agree that Barboursville makes for an excellent day trip destination.
