Yes, can you renovate my house (circa 1924)? Just kidding. Thanks for the great tour!

What You'll Get


A house says a lot about its owner, as evidenced by Galileo’s solar-system bed sheets and Lincoln’s vast collection of presidential action figures. Take a peek inside the mind of a historic figure with today’s Groupon for the Alexander Majors House and John Wornall House museums on Wornall Road and State Line Road, respectively. Choose between the following options:

  • For $12, you get two tickets for tours of each house (up to a $24 value).
  • For $50, you get a one-year Society of 1858 family membership to both museums (a $100 value). [Membership](http://wornallhouse.org/support/become-a-member/) includes:
    • Free admission and tours for four people at a time
    • A 10% discount at museum gift shops
    • Invitations to special events
    • Invitations and discounts to special events
    • A museum newsletter



This duo of history-rich houses showcase antebellum architectural styles, while providing insight into the mores of the era. With four tour tickets total, the historically inclined can visit each house twice or bring a friend along for each visit, while family memberships net unlimited entries for the nuclear unit, along with advance invites to special society-only events. A Greek revival-style home from 1858, the John Wornall House beckons history lovers in to watch costumed reenactors living in the past, where they play period-specific video games while drinking period-specific Mountain Dew. Regular special events at the house include paranormal investigations by local ghost hunters and recreations of the house’s past as a Civil War hospital. Dogs can sprint across the lush grounds while their two-legged companions waft in luscious scents from the herb garden, which contains a variety of delicate plants used in medicines and recipes.

The second of the city’s five standing antebellum homes, Alexander Major’s House has a towering alabaster façade, which juts from the ground directly across from the state line. The house illuminates the life of its owner, who stands tall in Kentucky's history, having contributed to the founding of the Pony Express, the rapid-transit system, and the passive-aggressive Facebook post.
