Duncan Tavern, built in 1788, is one of the finest examples of an eighteenth
century early settlement home later used as a tavern in America. Constructed of native limestone, it was built by Joseph Duncan, an officer in the Revolutionary War, and as a tavern went under the sign "The Goddess of Liberty." The oldest standing tavern in Kentucky was a gathering place for such pioneers as Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton, James Smith "first rebel of the Revolution," Peter Houston and Michael Stoner.
Today it contains an in-house museum, the John Fox, Jr. Genealogical Library and meeting facilities. It is furnished with rare and valuable antiques.
Guided tours allow visitors to enjoy the architecture, furniture and the wonderful stories of its historic past. Tours are available at 1:30 pm, Wednesday - Saturday. Group tours may be arranged by calling 859-987-1788.
