Experience 19th century plantation life at this historic compound where you can tour the mansion or "big house," see quarters where slaves lived, visit a smokehouse and other elements of daily life in the Old South.
The main house and other buildings are really interesting to visit and what brings them to life is the guide who will spend as much time as needed to tell you about the house and the families who lived there. Internally the main house has...More

Another great museum tour but in the home where it happened. Learn more about hemp production and see lovely furniture. Our guide was very knowledgeable and could answer any question which was asked. My wife and I loved it and may go back again.

When took a field trip in elementary school to Waveland as part of history. I still remember the trip some 40 years later. Wonderful home that I have since revisited as an adult when I return to Lexington.

I believe that this was $10 per person. However, we took advantage of a 4 home tour package for only $20 per person which included Waveland, the Mary Todd Lincoln House, The Hunt Morgan House and Ashland home of Henry Clay. This is the least expensive way to see these home. This package can be purchased downtown at the visitor's center.
