Bibb House

Major Richard Bibb, a Revolutionary War officer, built this house in 1820. In 1829, he freed 29 of his slaves and returned them to Liberia. He provided for the liberation of his remaining slaves in his will. One of his sons, John, developed Bibb lettuce; another, George, became Chief Justice of the Kentucky Court of Appeals, a U.S. Senator, and member of President Tyler's cabinet. Open to the Public.
