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.
Ashland is located 1.5 miles east of downtown Lexington, on the corner of Richmond and Sycamore Roads.
