The in-person 27th Annual House Tour will begin at 5:00 p.m. with a comprehensive tour of the Filson Historical Society campus, the historic Old Louisville Ferguson Mansion. This tour, led by Filson staff, will feature A Child’s World and Women at Work exhibits as well as items from our collection unique to this event. Participants will enjoy a rare whisky toast, followed by Filson lecturer, John David Myles, who will give a history of the Ferguson Mansion, and explore other work by its architects Dodd & Cobb and their associates in Louisville and California. He will also place the mansion within the context of other Louisville landmarks of the Beaux Arts era such as Rostrevor, the former First Christian Church on Fourth Street, and the Police Court building behind Metro Hall. Participants will also have the opportunity to ask questions at the conclusion of the lecture. The in-person event will also include food and drink. A virtual option will be available for those wanting to view the lecture only. In-person seating is limited, so early registration is recommended.
