Berry Mansion Frankfort, Kentucky
We went to the Berry Mansion in Frankfort, Kentucky. This is a beautiful mansion. Once owned by a wealthy family involved in the whiskey industry, the 22 room Berry Mansion, built from stone quarried on the property, now houses government offices and host special events, including weddings. The first floor, however, is open to the public with a self guided tour brochure pointing out highlights of the foyer, dining room, library, drawing room, music room, service wing, and grounds. There is a large pipe organ in the ornate music room, that room alone, was added in 1912, and cost nearly as much as the entire Governor's Mansion.
The Berry Mansion is located at 700 Louisville Road. Frankfort, Ky. The website is http://www.historicproperties.ky.gov/
