Cassius Marcellus Clay was one of the Bluegrass region's most colorful 19th-century personalities and was known as the 'Lion of White Hall'. He was an outspoken abolitionist, newspaper publisher, U.S. Minister to Russia, and friend of Abraham Lincoln. His home, an elaborate Italianate mansion, had central heating and indoor plumbing in the mid-19th century, an unusual feature for its time, and is furnished with many original Clay family items.
