The mansion’s mustard-yellow walls are outlined by crisp white trim, as well as slender columns where the stately edifice sits overlooking the Ohio River. Built in the mid-19th century for Thomas Gaff, the Italian Renaissance-inspired estate is full of antebellum charm. Now a National Historic Landmark, its ornately carved brackets and sweeping balconies constantly remind visitors of the era when it was built, when each of these details was crafted painstakingly by hand. Tour guides lead visitors through the mansion’s fully restored halls, which occasionally house tea parties and luncheons for lucky groups. The estate also hosts intimate wedding parties to engage in festivities or get inspiration in the Century of Brides exhibit that showcases century-old gowns.

Who They Are
The collections at Behringer-Crawford Museum trace the history of the Ohio River Valley and Northern Kentucky across centuries and exciting changes. Visitors can step into different eras at a replica drive-in with a vintage Buick Electra or a model steamboat. The interactive activities are spread across a four-story exhibition area, which has room for natural science as well as history. That's why visitors can also find exciting products of nature, such as a two-headed calf, or enjoy a simulated boat trip down the Ohio River.
