Jack Jouett House

255 Craigs Creek Road, Versailles, KY 40383

Known as "Paul Revere of the South," Jack Jouett rode 40 miles through the woods of Virginia to warn Governor Thomas Jefferson and the Virginia legislature of the approach of 250 British troops during the Revolutionary War. Jouett moved to this house after the war, where he played an important role in Kentucky statehood. His rural family homestead includes a 1780's frontier stone cabin and a 1797 Federal-style brick cottage.
