History & Highlights: The Grounds at Warrenwood Manor

Warrenwood Manor is nestled in the heart of Kentucky on 100-acres of rolling green hills.  The land was originally purchased in 1785 by Captain William Warren, a Revolutionary War soldier, and later developed by his descendants, John Fouche Warren and Samuel Wilcox Warren.  Now, cattle roam the majority of the land while events are held at the front of the property.  Large, mature trees cover the grounds giving year-round character and color to the landscape.  The historic home is the foundation of the property, but several out buildings, new and old, also dot the estate.

The cottage, located directly behind the main house (#3 on the map), is said to have been one of the original structures on the property.  The Warren brothers lived in this tiny, three-story cottage as the main house was being built which would have been several years.  We haven’t been able to restore the cottage yet, but we hope to eventually.  For now, it serves as the backdrop for many of our outdoor ceremonies.

Behind the cottage is a garage and carport (#4).  This building was added in the 1970’s or 80’s for practical purposes and is now usually used for event extras like a kids area, photo booth, etc.  It doesn’t match the style of the house exactly, but attempts were made for this building to compliment the other buildings.

Not much is known (to us) about the barn at Warrenwood, but you can read about it in our recent blog, History & Highlights: The Warrenwood Manor Barn.  A corn crib and running shed stand next to the barn.  This space is used for event extras just like the carport.  Sometimes it even houses the bar.

Beyond these buildings, you can look in any direction to see pastures, ponds, and trees galore.  Warrenwood changes drastically throughout the season with each offering something special.  Event photographers use every inch of Warrenwood to creatively capture the beauty of the property, the people, and the event.  Below is a curated collection of images that will make you feel like you’re strolling the Warrenwood grounds.  Enjoy!
