Touring this estate is a bit like going back in time. The tour began with a film about Henry Clay, his home, and his family.
Among other things, Mr. Clay was US Secretary of State under John Quincy Adams and is "Kentucky's favorite son."
There's a small museum on the ground floor, but valuable pieces are displayed throughout the house. Notice the glass goblet owned by George Washington.
For the person interested in grand, old homes, antiques, or history, Ashland is a must when visiting Lexington.
