Settled in 1780, Bardstown is
Kentucky's second-oldest city.
Throughout Nelson County, there
are more than 300 buildings on the National Register of Historic
Places, with nearly 200 of them located in the historic downtown
district. In fact, the stagecoach stop that was built in 1779 still
stands today as a tavern, restaurant, and bed & breakfast.

You'll also find the friendly attitude and Southern charm that can
only be found in such a town. It's a place where neighbors still
borrow cups of sugar. Because let's face it, you can't make a mint
julep without sugar! You also can't make it without bourbon.
