An Italianate style mansion sits at the center of the estate, and the English parterre garden — free to visitors — is a favorite spot of local artists and photographers. Walk down the adjacent tree-lined streets, such as Catalpa Road and South Ashland Avenue, to view lovely residential gardens, century-old trees, and examples of American Craftsman,Colonial Revival and Tudor Revival architecture. Mansion and “Trees of Ashland” tours are offered year-round. Visit for ticketing information. Insider Tips: ◆ The wings of the Federal style house were designed by Benjamin Latrobe, the architect of the U.S. Capitol. ◆ Landscape architect Henry Fletcher Kenney designed the garden following its opening to the public in 1950. It continues to be maintained by members of the Lexington Garden Club. ◆ Have lunch at the Ginkgo Tree Cafe, a casual eatery on the grounds of the Ashland Estate that serves crepes, salads and specialty sandwiches. ◆ In Autumn, the front lawn of the Ashland Estate and the nearby Catalpa Road are blanketed in yellow Ginkgo leaves from the historic trees that date back to 1890. ◆ Though many plants are dormant during winter months, the bones of Henry Clay’s garden are a quietly beautiful sight to see all on their own.
