"On the night of June 3-4, 1781, Captain John "Jack" Jouett, Jr. rode 40 miles through the backwoods of Virginia to warn Governor Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia legislature of the approach of 250 British troops." This rural homestead includes a 1780's frontier stone cabin, used as a kitchen by the Jouetts. Filled with period furnishings, the Federal-style brick house features a formal parlor, dining room, and three bedrooms. It is one of Kentucky's oldest and most historic houses. One-hour, docent-led tours of the Jack Jouett House Historic Site are available from April through October.
