Clay Hill Farm was home for many servants whose labors enabled the farm to grow from 300 to more than 4,000 acres in the early 1800′s. During the Civil War it was at times used as refuge for John Hunt Morgan.Clay Hill Memorial Forest is now a regional center for environmental education and research dedicated to helping people find comfort in nature. The Center, managed by Campbellsville University, brings excellence in science education to the people of the Commonwealth through an amazing array of displays: an alternative energy building, a center for sight-impaired children, a “living wall”, a waste-water purification wetland circuit, a slave cabin & cemetery, a natural cob bench, a pond observation deck & boardwalk, and five miles of trails that are a bird watchers delight.Clay Hill Memorial Forest has over 5 miles of interpretive trails. Enjoy a self-guided tour and explore the trails leading to a cabin, spring and cemetery that still remain as testimony to the history of servants.
