Mission Statement

The mission of Farmington Historic Plantation is to present the story of a unique early nineteenth century Kentucky house, its people and their farm culture, through preservation, exhibits, programming, and education. Farmington serves a broad audience of 15,000 people annually for tours, school groups, specialty tours, events, festivals, lectures, and programs.

Description

Completed in 1816, this 14-room Federal-style home was once the center of a 550-acre hemp plantation belonging to the Speed family. Abraham Lincoln, a close friend of Joshua Speed, spent about three weeks at Farmington in 1841.
