Unfolding The Story

Unfolding The Story transports guests back in time to learn about the lives and stories of the enslaved community at Locust Grove. The immersive program addresses life in early Kentucky through the perspective of two members of Locust Grove’s enslaved community. Unfolding The Story is not focused on reenacting the traumatic experiences of the enslaved women, men and children who lived and worked at Locust Grove – but rather telling their stories in a way that justly depicts them as full human beings.

Unfolding the Story takes place inside on both stories of the historic house, and in and around the other historic outbuildings on our grounds. The experience is about 90 minutes of walking and standing, with some seating available.
