Although I didn't have time to do the tour that's been highly recommended in other reviews, even a brief stop at this small historic home warranted further exploration of the adjoining graveyard. It's a peaceful environment and you can look closely at the simple headstones....More

This is a little off the beaten path, but the path is a very pretty drive. Jack Jouett is the “Paul Revere of the South” having forewarned Thomas Jefferson and others of coming British. He moved to Kentucky and had a successful hemp plantation among...More

What a neat spot! The house is that of the 'other' Paul Revere, the one who never had a poem about him go viral! Jouett made the same ride as Revere but through much more difficult conditions and under threat of capture. The house is...More

Stopped by to see the new plaque that was recently installed about the history of the place. I see no other reviews since I did one in March. Still a great place to stop and look around. Put it on your list when in Versailles!

The guided tours were closed but spent quite some time walking the grounds. Was surprised by the wonderful condition of the historic home. Will be coming back soon for a guided tour. Also the family cemetery was quite a surprise.
