Read about the evolution of Gardens to Gables in this lovely article by Tom Eblen, columnist for the Lexington Herald-Leader.
Janie-Rice Brother is an architectural historian, explorer, proud native Kentuckian and farmer’s daughter. In addition to studying the landscape of the Bluegrass (and wherever else her rambles take her), she marvels over country houses and gardens, and spends as much time in England as possible. You can follow her on Instagram to see daily photos of houses, landscapes, and (sometimes) silly dogs. Gardens to Gables is also on Facebook, sharing preservation and architecture stories from around the globe (and more photographs of Kentucky’s historic buildings and landscapes).
Examples of county-wide historic surveys, with an emphasis on rural landscapes, can be found at the following links:
