Abraham Lincoln’s Kentucky: on the blog today! Link in bio. 🎩🌳 This cabin belonged to a childhood friend of Lincoln’s and has been reconstructed (literally!) at Knob Creek Farm, Lincoln’s second home.

One of my favorite interior shots from a recent architectural shoot at the Evan Williams Bourbon Experience in Louisville KY. Need architectural photography that rocks?! Head over to www.digitalartthatrocks.com

Late-19th century house with some Italianate brackets at the cornice and elongated, narrow windows, and the most charming of enclosed entryways - based on the fanlight, I would say a 1930s/Colonial Revival addition. And I love that red door! Mt. Sterling, Kentucky. #reddoor #vernaculararchitecture #kentuckyarchitecture #oldhouselove #archi_ologie #houseportrait #fanlight #mtsterlingky

Ward Hall was the summer home of Mississippi planter Junius Ward. It was designed by Englishman Major Thomas Lewinski off of designs by Minard Lafever. Ward paid $50,000 in gold for its construction, which was completed in 1857. It was rescued from a local developer who had slated it for demolition and is in the process of being restored. .

Shotgun house, peonies, orange truck. Lexington, Kentucky. #vernaculararchitecture #kentuckyarchitecture #shotgunhouse #historicarchitecture #lexingtonky

Currently housing a Bed and Breakfast, this classic Newport Italianate, built in 1878, possesses the expected charm associated with the style. The recessed doorway and smart color palette only add to the dignified aesthetic of this Victorian charmer. #cincinnati #architecturelovers #architecture #architecturephotography #italianate #newportky #victorianarchitecture #kentuckyarchitecture

"There's a hole in the drywall still not fixed
I just haven't gotten around to it
And besides I'm starting to get used to the gap"

These bricks are telling some interesting stories. 🤔 (Thomas House ca. 1815)

A gallery glimpse of our foyer full of lovely pieces, however Miss CC is not impressed and wants to call it a day! #springtime #norwichterrier #dogsofinstagram #jaynethompsonantiques #instagood #antique #antiques #kentucky #kentuckyarchitecture #interiordesign #interiors #gallery #tgif

There are so many great doors in Kentucky. This one belongs to the 1825 John Hill House.

This window was built by Thomas Lincoln, father of Abe 🎩 (the door is a reproduction). Jack Thomas House (ca. 1815).

Hi, Kentucky! 🤗

Colonial Revival in stone. One of those houses you pass all the time, but never really stop and admire - and there is a lot to admire! Euclid Avenue, Lexington, Kentucky. #kentuckyhouse #kentuckyarchitecture #oldhouselove #architecture #historicarchitecture #lexingtonky

The Federal style Old Governor’s Mansion was built around 1797, and occupied by 35 governors between the time of its construction and 1914. After that date, it stood mostly vacant and neglected, and was scheduled for demolition in 1948. Governor Simeon Willis (whose wife would become the first director of the State Historic Preservation Office) intervened to save the building. From 1956-2002, it served as the official residence of the Kentucky Lieutenant Governor. Frankfort, Kentucky. #historicarchitecture #oldhouselove #kentuckyarchitecture #historickentucky #federalstyle #frankfortky

Arts and Crafts and Swiss Chalet architecture both began as European forms, but melded seamlessly in late 19th century America. Each style stressed functionality, purity of design, and the use of organic materials. Devotees advocated craftsmanship and rejected the pretense and soullessness of the Industrial Age. #covingtonky #kentuckyarchitecture #cincinnati #ohioriver #artsandcrafts #craftsmanstyle #swisschalet #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #oldhouselove #organicarchitecture
