Kentucky Hotel Reservations
Waveland State Historic Site
Kentucky's roots date back to 1775, when American pioneer and frontiersman Daniel Boone first explored and settled the area. Daniel Boone surveyed 2,000 acres of land, located south of downtown Georgetown, for his nephew Daniel Boone Bryan. Once Bryan died, his son Joseph Bryan, Sr. demolished the original stone home to build the Greek Revival style Waveland Mansion. The estate was owned by a few different families throughout the years, until 1971 when it was established as the Waveland State Historic Site.
Make your way to this beautiful 10-acre site to view the mansion and grounds to see what life was like on a plantation in the 1840s. In addition to the mansion, enjoy a guided tour of the brick servants quarters, the smokehouse, the ice house and the barn. While on the grounds, take a break for a picnic lunch on the lawn, while the kids play on the playground. Before leaving, browse the selection of items in the Gift Shop. Enjoy spending time at this wonderful historical site during your eastern Kentucky travels.
