Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate

  • 120 Sycamore Road
  • Lexington, KY  40502

The highlight of a visit to Ashland is the guided tour of the 18-room mansion. A guide welcomes you at the front door to begin your journey through the Clay family mansion and time travel from the 18th century to the present. Guided tours of the mansion take approximately 50 minutes. Additional time may be spent visiting the permanent Henry Clay exhibit room, watching an informational video about Henry Clay, taking the self-guided tour of the outbuildings, strolling the formal garden and walking trails, shopping in the Museum Store, or having a bite to eat or a refreshing glass of iced tea at the seasonal Ginkgo Tree Cafe (open mid-April through mid-October, weather permitting).
