Additional Details:
The Garden in rear of Old Kentucky Home near Bardstown, "In Old Kentucky" where Stephen Collins Foster wrote "My Old Kentucky Home" While visiting here in August 1852, Stephen Collins Foster, author of many popular negro melodies, wrote "My Old Kentucky Home." Located 38 miles south of Louisville and 3/4 of a mile east of Bardstown, this house, now a state shrine, is a replica of Independence hall where the Declaration of Independence was signed. Mingling with the slaves inspired Foster to write his songs and visiting the grave of his cousin caused him to write "Massa's in De Cold, Cold Ground."
