General Butler State Resort Park [KY]

The General Butler State Resort Park includes the 1859 Greek Revival Butler-Turpin State Historic House. The house commemorates the Butler family, one of the most prominent military families of Kentucky. The Butlers served in the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Mexican War, and Civil War. Today, their home serves as a museum of local life and the family's military history. The site includes the family home, summer kitchen, log house archaeological site, and cemetery.

The house offers tours, as well as educational programming led by costumed interpreters and in compliance with state educational standards.
