The mansion was originally built in 1805 by John Bradshaw. It was designed in the popular Federal style and surrounded by 456 acres of rural Kentucky land. In the 1850s, it was purchased by William Wesley Duncan. He converted it to the Italiante design that still stands today. The mansion is currently found on the National Register of Historic Places.

The dream team!
I don’t even know where to begin with Bradshaw-Duncan house... WOW, thank you all! I am a covid bride and had quite the experience planning the wedding of our dreams. We were suppose to get married downtown Louisville and we had gotten canceled by our venue because of protesting, rioting and all the excitement in Louisville. The cancellation of our original venue occurred FIVE days before our wedding day. Rebecca who is part of the Bradshaw Duncan house team reach out to me on Facebook along with hundreds of others and for some reason I was drawn to answer her back on messenger. Let’s make a long stressful story short... I met with Tina to look at the venue and WOW. I’ve never seen something more gorgeous . I knew exactly that it was the one ! Tina and Rebecca planned our entire wedding in THREE days. They are the dream team. They went ABOVE & BEYOND our expectations to make this wedding perfect in THREE days! I mean I’m speechless. They are SO wonderful and they will do any and everything to make your day so special! I can’t thank them enough. I would recommend this venue to any and everyone over and over. Between Tina, Fred (owners) & Rebecca they through together something that looks like they had months to do. Such sweet sweet people ! Thank you Bradshaw-Duncan house !!!Sent on 09/29/2020
