We invite you to stay at Louisville’s most historic and most opulently furnished inn, the Samuel Culbertson Mansion. This Georgian Revival house is located on Mansion Row in the Old Louisville National Historic District, just blocks from downtown, the University and Churchill Downs. Pamper yourself in the trappings of the Gilded Age, and enjoy a piece of traditional Kentucky in the birthplace of the Garland of Roses, once home to a President of Churchill Downs and the “Two Little Knights of Kentucky”.
Horse racing in Kentucky is rich in history, dating back to 1789 when the first race course was laid out in Lexington. However, it was almost 100 years later, in 1875, that Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as “Home of the Kentucky Derby.”
