Visit an immaculate 19th-century Victorian mansion in Kentucky.

The Victorian mansion known as The Brennan House was one of many located on this residential downtown street in Louisville, Kentucky. It was originally built in 1868 for a tobacco wholesaler named Francis Ronald. Thomas Brennan bought the home in 1884. Brennan was from Ireland and was co-owner and vice president of Brennan & Co., Southwestern Agricultural Works, a manufacturer of farming machinery. Thomas Brennan was also an inventor and won 2 prizes at the 1993 Chicago World's Fair. Thomas Brennan and his wife Anna had 8 children that grew up in the home. Two of the sons became doctors, one of which was Dr. J. A. O. Brennan, who added a medical office space with exam rooms and a waiting room in the home in 1912. This north wing expansion is intact today with an exam table and medical equipment, including medical volumes from the early 20th century. He lived in the house until he died in 1963.

The home was one of the first in Louisville to have electric lights. It has 3 stories, 6 bedrooms, and 16-foot tall ceilings. Features inside the home include slate mantels, crystal chandeliers, beautiful stained-glass windows, plus an extensive veranda. The rooms have many personal items from the family, such as portraits, hand-carved furniture, an ornate silver service, and steamer trunks with memorabilia from trips around the world. The property sits on 3 acres and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. You will be in awe of this well-kept historic mansion, come and take a tour if you're in Louisville, Kentucky.
