The Lexington KY Farm That Is Rumored To Be In The Famous Movie, 'Gone With The Wind!'
Manchester Farm is just one more reason I am proud to call Lexington my home! This beautiful 475-acre Thoroughbred horse farm is well-known for its distinctive blue and white cupolas. The farm claims to have the most photographed barn in Kentucky. This three-story barn has been featured on TV and in all kinds of publications including the Lexington phone book, Kentucky Derby programs, Southern Living, National Geographic, and ads for Toyota, Corvette, and Master Card.
A historic home on the property is the distinguished Gray Mansion, which was built in 1789. It and the surrounding rolling hills are rumored to be featured background images for the famous movie, “Gone With the Wind.”
Manchester Farm is one of Lexington’s oldest farms, dating back to the late 1700s when it was 1400 acres. It was originally named Manchester Springs Plantation, after the creek that runs through the property. Buffalo were known to gather at that very creek, as noted by Col. Robert Patterson who was one of the founders of Lexington. The southern portion of the land eventually became Keeneland Racetrack. Manchester Farm welcomes visitors by appointment. Drive by anytime to admire this pretty horse farm.
