Versailles, established in 1792 by General Marquis Calmes, offers a wealth of historic southern homes and buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Versailles and the outlying areas offer numerous opportunities for the antique lover. Scenic tree- lined roads pass by horse farms that are home to Kentucky Derby winners. Learn how true Kentucky Bourbon is made at Kentucky’s oldest operating distillery founded in 1812. Venture into museums filled with vintage toys, trains and works of art, some by local artists. Take a walk through an authentic passenger train and see railroad equipment and memorabilia, then hop aboard for a trip through a scenic gorge, a Kentucky River overlook and past the rolling hills of the Bluegrass. Relax the old fashioned way at one of many bed and breakfast lodgings dating back to the 1700’s. Take time to travel Versailles and Woodford County, a place where memories are made.
