Unique Attraction

With a commanding view of the Ohio River Valley the restored home built in 1859, in the Greek Revival style, displays a number of military documents, furniture and objects original to the Butler family. The house, built of native masonry construction, is a traditional four over four with center hallways, retaining nearly all of its original features. Plain and fancy describes this fine old country home with its simplistic façade but with a lot of grand interior details to admire once you pass through the entrance.

Just 50 miles from Louisville, the building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and offers opportunities for education about the history of the area and the home’s importance.
