Give to Ashland

Since 1926, the vision for Ashland was to create a place for the public to enjoy and learn about Henry Clay, a great American statesman. The first caretakers were Clay descendants, while they still occupied the property. Now, it is the Henry Clay Memorial Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, that owns and operates the national historic landmark that sits proudly in the heart of a lovely Lexington neighborhood. Ashland receives no city, state, or federal funding. Ongoing support is provided by friends such as you, who help Ashland continue its mission as a National Historic Landmark, Museum, and Educational Center honoring the life and legacy of Henry Clay.
