I worked at Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate as a volunteer then staff member, 2003-2009. I earned my MA in Art History at the University of Kentucky in 2008 with a Master’s thesis entitled, “Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate, As House Museum: Private Home and Public Destination” under the direction of Dr. Wallis Miller, Associate Professor in Architecture.
Now living in Chicago, I am writing a book based on that thesis.
This blog is an effort to share the wealth of historical information about the incredible and singular place that is Ashland, The Henry Clay Estate.
Thanks for reading. ~Wendy Bright
