We toured the grounds while shopping for a wedding venue. The gardens are beautiful and the house is great layout for entertaining. Love the history and appreciate all the opportunity for some great wedding memories.

A fine old house with mainly original furnishings belonging to the former residents of the house.
All items and furnishings are accessible to the public (nothing roped off) and a great room upstairs with items from and about John Hunt Morgan. The nice lady giving the personal tour, was a great source of information on the house and the surrounding area. She also gave directions on where to find Morgan's statue and burial site (both of which I wasn't aware of)
Recommended for Civil War buffs and those interested in the history of Lexington.

The Hunt-Morgan House features a number of items, some related to John Hunt Morgan, the Confederate General, but not all. A descendant of the family made headway in DNA research and the museum tries to highlight the periods of the home, not just during the war. In the Civil War display, there is information about a former slave owned by the family who joined the Union Army in 1863. They were also giving away a diary written by a woman who was pro-Union during the war (and kept tabs on the family).

Loved the place and finding out a little more about this family. Strange how it seems all the well known people are connected to other famous people thru marriage, business, family, etc.

My fraternity hosted several events at the Hunt-Morgan. The staff was always very gracious and the location is beautiful. This would be a great place for any event less than 100 people. We truly enjoyed our times there.
