Summer Antiques Market at Locust Grove on June 29
If seeing one of Louisville’s most historic homes isn’t quite enough beauty for you, how about an antiques market that’s full of gorgeous works of art…held on the lawn of that historic home? That’s just what you’ll find if you visit the Summer Antiques Market at Locust Grove on June 29.
Shop at Locust Grove
The antique market will open at 10 am on Sunday, June 29, and close by 4:30 pm. That gives you several hours to shop among the wares of 100 professional antiques dealers, who will be set up on the lawn. They’ll offer everything from art to porcelain works, furniture, books, sterling silver pieces, jewelry and lots more.
While you browse, eat. Concessions will be open and running all day long. Admission is $6 for adults and $3 for children aged 6 to 12. Your admission includes a tour of the historic Locust Grove house, one of Louisville’s landmarks. The proceeds of the event go toward the maintenance of the Locust Grove property, a sprawling 55-acre estate close to the banks of the Ohio River.
Touring Locust Grove
Locust Grove is close to the Louisville Boat Club. The surrounding neighborhoods include Indian Hills, Riverwood and Glenview Hills, communities that feature beautiful homes. Locust Grove itself is one of the oldest parts of Louisville. The original farmstead was built way back in 1790. Presidents Monroe, Jackson and Taylor spent time at Locus Grove, as did explorers Meriwether and Clark.
It’s a famous home, and history will be the focus at the Summer Antiques Market this June. Whether you’re there to shop or just look around, the event is a fun trip through history.
