Ashland is the site of celebrated statesman Henry Clay's original 672-acre estate that once grew hemp, tobacco, and grain. It is now a museum and National Historic Landmark where visitors can tour the reconstructed 18-room mansion, shop in the museum store, and then enjoy the 17 acre grounds, including a self-guided outbuildings tour, walking trails, gardens, and an arboretum with over 400 trees and 44 different species. The mission of the Henry Clay Memorial Foundation is to promote the legacy of Henry Clay; share his continued relevance as a great statesman, innovator, and entrepreneurial farmer; and preserve Ashland as a testament to his love of Kentucky and country.
