This is the only Frank Lloyd Wright house in Kentucky built in his lifetime. Located in a residential neighborhood close to the Kentucky State Capital building, this Prairie style house is beautifully maintained. The front is visible from the street, and the contrast to the contemporary victorian counterparts on the block is striking.

Occupied as a private residence.

This is the 150th Frank Lloyd Wright building I have visited.

Frankfort, KY

The Buffalo Trace Distillery is on the U.S. Register of Historic Places and it is a U.S. National Historic Landmark. Walking around this complex you can see and feel the history – and it is not a museum. It is an active, working distillery that has been continuously distilling liquor for over 200 years – even through the prohibition years. Not only does it have a real, gritty industrial feel, you can also feel the employee and family’s involvement and presence in the distillery.

I went on the National Historic Landmark Tour of this distillery. Click HERE for additional photos and description of the history of this famous distillery.
