Homes For Sale In Garrard County, Kentucky

Located in the Bluegrass Region of Kentucky at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Garrard County is known for being the site of the Kennedy House, said to have been used in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Harriet Beecher Stowe is said to have visited the Kennedy home in Garrard County while gathering some of the material for her book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. The legendary cabin of Uncle Tom was located behind the Kennedy mansion near Paint Lick here in Garrard County. The book inflamed anti-slavery sentiment throughout the North and deep resentment in the South with its publication in 1851 and was credited by President Lincoln as having started the Civil War. Efforts are underway to rebuild a replica of the cabin on the grounds of the historic Gov. Owsley Home in Lancaster.
