A Musical Timeline
In the year 1784, William Croghan had settled in Louisville. On the other side of the world, a young composer named Mozart was coming into his own. In 1792, one of his operatic masterpieces, “The Magic Flute,” debuted. That same year, Locust Grove was being built. This opera contains one of the most famous arias ever written. Even if you're no opera buff, you've heard this uplifting, amazing song before, but you've never heard it on the grounds of glorious Locust Grove until now.
That's just the first step in a musical journey that will take you to 1878, when Gilbert and Sullivan were writing some of the best-loved songs ever created, and Locust Grove was sold for the first time. You'll travel through music history all the way to the 1960s, when this property was opened to the public to become one if the city’s can't-miss attractions.
