Farmington, a fourteen-room Federal-style home, was the center of John and Lucy Speed's nineteenth-century hemp plantation. Abraham Lincoln, a close friend of John Speed's son, Joshua, spent about three weeks at Farmington in 1841. Designed from plans drawn by Thomas Jefferson and completed in 1816 with slave labor, the newly restored house features original paint colors, historic wallpaper and carpets, and is furnished with Kentucky and period furnishings.
