Moving to Versailles Kentucky?
Versailles, Ky is a popular choice for home buyers looking for rural small town life- -without the isolation. Downtown Lexington is just 12 miles to the east, but feels a world away from the quiet life of this quaint town. Versailles (pronounced “Ver-sales”) is best known for its castle that attracts many sightseers. The castle hosts weddings and events, and has a hotel and restaurant open to the public. Versailles was founded in the late 1700s and features many historic homes and horse farms. Well-known thoroughbred horse farms include WinStar, Three Chimneys, Airdrie, and Lane’s End farm. Keeneland Racetrack and the Blue Grass Airport are within a 15-minute drive while Frankfort, the state capital, is only about 20 minutes away.
With a population of about 8,000, Versailles is the largest town in Woodford County. It is also home to the Woodford Reserve bourbon distillery. 135,000 people visited Woodford Reserve last year and that number is expected to grow significantly in the next decade. Brown Forman, which owns Woodford Reserve, recently announced a $1.5 million dollar expansion that will include a new tasting room, updated gift shop, and additional restrooms. Work is scheduled to begin this month.
