Hiestand House-Taylor County Museum

The Hiestand House-Taylor County Museum is an 1813 German stone house containing Taylor County history and antiques. It was one of many homes raided by General John Hunt Morgan during the Civil War. The museum features exquisite hand-tooled masonry work rarely equaled in 18th or 19th century American architecture. One of 12 German stone houses in Kentucky, the Jacob Hiestand House is a significant example of a federal-style house. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens, servant quarters, and a spring house.
