Farmington Historic Plantation

Louisville, Kentucky

About

Completed in 1816, Farmington was the center of a 550 acre hemp plantation owned by the Speed family and sustained by nearly 60 enslaved African Americans. Abraham Lincoln, a close friend of Joshua Speed, spent about three weeks at Farmington in 1841. The site explores the history of the family, the enslaved population, and the strong friendship with Abraham Lincoln. Tour the new Lincoln exhibits, the many outbuildings, and recently restored historic home.

Farmington is one of the stops on Kentucky's Lincoln Trail.
