Waveland State Historic Site [KY]
The Waveland State Historic Site preserves a home from one of Kentucky's earliest settlements, the 1779 Bryan's Station. The Bryan family accompanied famed trailblazer Daniel Boone through the Cumberland Gap; and the 1847 Greek Revival home on site was built by a Bryan who was also Boone's grandnephew. The site contains the residence, fields of grain and hemp, racing thoroughbreds, slave quarters, a smokehouse, an icehouse, and flower and herb gardens. The site's interpretation focuses on 19th-century plantation life and the Bryan family.
The site offers period rooms, guided home and outbuilding tours, group tours, student tours, student educational programs, gardens, a nature trail, a playground, and picnic tables. Reservations are required for group tours. Between January and March, the site is open by appointment only. Educational programs focus on Kentucky plantation life between 1840 and 1860.
