The magnificent 18-room mansion stands in the heart of one of Lexington's most beautiful residential districts, a reminder of the rich heritage left by Henry Clay and his decendants. This National Historic Landmark houses the Henry Clay Memorial Foundation and historic house museum, boasting a rare collection comprised almost exclusively of original Clay family items. Several historic outbuildings, a formal garden and 17 acres of wooded parkland complete Ashland's graceful setting.

This is one of the stops along Kentucky's Lincoln Heritage Trail.
