Latrobe's Pope Villa
While touring the vibrant city of Lexington, include plenty of time to tour some of the city's historical homes. The Hunt-Morgan House, Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate and Latrobe's Pope Villa are among the must-see historical estates. Visit Lexington's Aylesford Historic District to see the Pope Villa, designed by Benjamin Henry Labtrobe in 1811. This neoclassical avant-garde estate remains the most preserved of the three residents designed by Latrobe, the first professional architect in the country.
This exquisite home was saved from demolition by the Blue Grass Trust for Historic Preservation in 1987. Tour this magnificent home to view the circular domed rotunda, curvilinear rooms and detailed architecture, undergoing restoration. This restoration effort ensures that this historical treasure continues to tell its story for generations to come. Enjoy your visit to eastern Kentucky and Georgetown.
