Visited this home with my husband. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in history, architecture, or just wanting general knowledge of Louisville of old.

Exquisitely restored home well kept. Tour guide really explained every detail of the mansion and history of it's family owners. The woodwork of the stairwell and staircase is so beautiful with intricate carving, it is mesmerizing! Also the very extravagant decor/ fireplaces so worth visiting.

This "castle" is a must see! The family stories told make this era come to life in a new way. The walk down the street to see other historic homes is a treat in Lousiville!

This place is amazing and the tour guides provide very interesting and detailed information. The second owner -Caldwell designed water towers. The floors designs are based on quilt patterns. Every room is different.
