ASHLAND HENRY CLAY ESTATE – Lexington, KY

ASHLAND HENRY CLAY ESTATE – Lexington, KY
ASHLAND HENRY CLAY ESTATE - Lexington, KY

In this segment, we learn about one of Kentucky’s most famous politicians, Henry Clay, as we take a journey to Ashland, the Henry Clay Estate! This property is maintained by the Henry Clay Memorial Foundation, which is a nonprofit that is responsible for preserving Ashland as a national historic landmark. The foundation was founded in 1926.

“I am in one respect better off than Moses. He died in sight of, without reaching, the Promised Land. I occupy as good a farm as any that he would have found, if he had reached it; & it has been acquired not by hereditary descent, but by my own labor.” – Henry Clay.

This estate was a place Henry Clay held very close to his heart and brought him much happiness. On a tour of this landmark you can learn about Henry Clay and his accomplishments as a statesman, attorney, and farmer as well as take in the sights of this beautiful landmark and hopefully experience the same emotions the beauty gave Clay.ASHLAND HENRY CLAY ESTATE - Lexington, KY

At this landmark there are many different exhibits showing what he accomplished in life, and exhibits about his legacy after death including the three US war ships named after him and his estate. The mansion also hosts an exhibit about how the Civil War affected the estate. The largest battle in Lexington was actually fought on the land of the mansion, so there’s quite an interesting narrative to be shared about that during this episode of kNOwMORE!

CHILDREN’S PLAYHOUSE PROGRAM – Louisville, KY

CHILDREN'S PLAYHOUSE PROGRAM - Louisville, KYCHILDREN’S PLAYHOUSE PROGRAM – Louisville, KY

The children’s playhouse program in Louisville is an organization that helps create a disabled child’s dream playhouse. These aren’t just any regular playhouses though, these playhouses help the children with their mental, physical, and social development therapies! The playhouses help to bring joy into an often very difficult and aggravating life for these children.

Each house is customized to each different child. The family works closely with a design team to make a playhouse that is just what the child wants and is able to be used with their disabilities. This program is important because it allows these children to play just like a child without their disability, and helps them feel included with their peers.CHILDREN'S PLAYHOUSE PROGRAM - Louisville, KY

Each time a playhouse is unveiled, you can see the joy in the child’s eyes when they see it for the first time. This nonprofit serves multiple purposes as well by giving students at YouthBuild Louisville hands on experience with designing and building. Having a playhouse helps ease the stress on the parents by seeing their children have fun. Fun is essential for a child, and this nonprofit provides that despite the challenges created by their disabilities.

The museum has displays that vary from archaeology to civil war history and everything in-between.

In the 1990s, the museum added an amphitheater to hold a weekly concert for two months out of the year, and other events for entertainment.

During that time Bill did the majority of his musical formation and growth while living with Uncle Pen and his fiddle. Growing up around his great musical influence of an uncle, he soon began forming different bands and found himself playing for large audiences such as the Grand Ole Opry radio show!BIRTHPLACE of BILL MONROE - Rosine, KY

Bill eventually passed due to a stroke in 1996. He was finally laid to rest close to the place he was born.
