This recently restored Federal-style house was the boyhood home of Col. Andrew Jackson May, the leading Confederate organizer in eastern Kentucky. In the meadow below the house, Col. May and Col. Hiram Hawkins organized the Fifth Kentucky Infantry Regiment. From time to time during the Civil War, the house served as a Confederate recruiting station.
