A House Divided

  • My Old Kentucky Home 501 East Stephen Foster Avenue Bardstown, KY, 40004 United States (map)

Visit Kentucky's most famous historic site, My Old Kentucky Home, to explore its connection to the American Civil War!

In our exhibit, “A HOUSE DIVIDED,” tour guests will discover and encounter the realities of the Civil War Era in and around the historic mansion. 

Hear our talented tour guides sing the abolitionist inspired song “My Old Kentucky Home" on every tour. As armies marched through the Bluegrass State, many local communities rationed supplies and provided food and clothing to soldiers, all while awaiting news of the war and family.

See rooms of the mansion transformed for the war-era, including an outstanding collection of weaponry, uniforms, and more!
