Ashland is privileged to have one of the finest collections of any historic house museum in the country. In addition to the largest and most important collection of artifacts of the life of Henry Clay anywhere, Ashland has significant furnishings, silver, fine art, books, and textiles. The collection forms the basis for all of our visitor experiences and programs.
We maintain an active preservation and conservation program to insure the long term survival of the treasures we hold in public trust. We also continually seek to enhance our collection through careful acquisition. We are always interested in hearing of artifacts that might be of importance to our collection and such artifacts may be brought to the attention of curator Eric Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org or 859-266-8581 x 203. Such submissions should include as much information about the artifacts as possible including source, previous ownership, and especially images.
