History and Hiking Across the Acres
Blackacre Nature Conservancy is located at 3200 Tucker Station Road, Louisville. The historic homestead has a rich history to be explored in addition to its grounds. With several buildings intact on 270 acres of the Tyler settlement from the 1780's, the history buff and hiker alike will delight in a visit to this historic gem.
Farming at the Homestead
On Saturday mornings the public is invited to feed the farm animals with Farmer Larry as he teaches about each animal, its care and contribution to the homestead. He begins on Saturday mornings at 9:30 at the barn. Blackacre has community garden plots available.
The farm tools are loaned for use in the gardens and tillers may be rented for a small fee. This retreat from the city has been referred to as a slice of heaven by both visitors and family who grew up on the property.
