We will begin the deTour at Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate located at 120 Sycamore Rd. in Lexington and gather in the front of the home at 5:30 pm following an open house tour of the first floor of the mansion, followed by an open tour of the grounds and hemp plot. Following the Ashland deTour, guests may caravan to Hopemont, The Hunt-Morgan House in downtown Lexington At 201 North Mill St. for an open house tour of the first floor of Hopemont mansion, including the Kentucky Hemp Museum.
