Waveland

225 Waveland Museum Lane, Lexington, KY 40515, USA

Both Confederate and Union armies prized the Standardbred horses raised on this plantation, which primarily grew tobacco and hemp. Everyday antebellum life of the Bryan family - including that of their slaves - is interpreted here. The 1847 brick residence is of classic Greek Revival design; three original outbuildings, including slave quarters, remain.
