Description:

Rural land has all but disappeared in Jefferson County– and with it, our only ties to the history of Kentucky’s early settlement. The Blackacre State Nature Preserve and Historic Homestead exists to preserve the precious traces of our past that have been all but erased in Louisville’s expansion into and development of its rural lands. Blackacre’s boundaries make up nearly half of the 600-acre Tyler Settlement, a rural historic district that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in May 1986. Remarkably, the pattern of fields, woods, and streams at Blackacre remains much the same as it was 200 years ago. Nestled in a lush 270-acre nature preserve near Jeffersontown, the historic homestead, barn, and gardens of Blackacre offer a slice of country charm. Rental options include the Presley Tyler 1844 Farmhouse, grounds surrounding our historic 1790’s barn, and the Schick Nature Center with its grounds and adjacent picnic tables. Tents may be set up in designated areas for a outdoor wedding in the meadows. Each venue allows you to take advantage of Blackacre’s natural and historic beauty and looks lovely simply decorated with flowers, vines, and personal details.
