Ashland Park Historic District (Lexington, Kentucky)

Clay-standing
Also known as the home of Henry Clay, the district is roughly bounded by S. Hanover Ave., Richmond Rd., Woodspoint Rd., and Fontaine Rd. and E. High St in Lexington, KY. Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986, it lies upon the grounds of the Ashland estate. It is an early 20th century residential neighborhood of primarily single-family homes.

Profile Description

In 1904 the Clay family hired the architectural firm of the Olmsted Brothers of Brookline, Massachusetts to construct a residential neighborhood on the 600-acre estate. Constructed over a 15-year period, the development was completed around 1930. The lots sold for approximately $2,500 each, with deed restrictions on the most prominent lots.  Ashland Park Historic District is located adjacent to Ashland, Henry Clay Estate off of East Main St. The houses in the district are private residences and are not open to the public.
