2408 Lexington Rd, Harrodsburg, KY

In 1880 Fairview was the largest farm in Mercer County outside of Pleasant Hill. This property was once the home place of Gov. Gabriel Slaughter and it still contains his circa 1800, two-room, log residence, plus the remnant of an early woodland savannah. The family graveyard is across the road on Shawnee Farm. Fairview’s main residence is a large Gothic Revival house started circa 1850 and received several Victorian style additions and renovations before 1900. The farm also contains a nineteenth-century meat house with Gothic Revival detailing as well as several historically significant modern barns, and out buildings.
