Honeysuckle Hill, beautiful antebellum home in Harrodsburg, Kentucky. Built in 1840, with an addition in 1860.

Built by a doctor who belonged to a nearby community of Shakers but who, in violation of the Shaker rules of celibacy, fell in love and planned to marry. He was expelled by the community and then designed the house for his fiancée, adding touches to remind her of her hometown, New Orleans.

Gallery porches along both sides of house. One-of-a-kind, hand-carved poplar scrollwork decorates front of upper porches. Greek Revival portico. Native poplar and walnut interior woodwork. 15-inch-thick interior walls of solid brick.

Listed in National Register of Historic Places. Named a Kentucky landmark by Kentucky Heritage Commission. Structural restoration in 2000. Rewired with 400-amp service. New roof in 2001.

5350 square feet—12 rooms, 4 bathrooms, cellar, 2 attics. Widow’s walk. Outbuilding that was used as servants’ quarters. On 2.1 acres, with small additional lot available.
