Historic Harrodsburg Real Estate

The “Birthplace of the West” is dotted with numerous historic, character homes, most notably toward the central core of the city. Many of this type of home come in the grand Colonial Victorian or Federalist styles, popular in centuries past.

Characteristic of these homes are distinct rooms separated by grand arched entryways, crown molding and wainscoting.

Larger estate homes outside the city tend to be much larger, positioned on large, rolling lots. These properties can be pretty size-able – 5 or more bedrooms and more than 5,000 square feet.

On the more contemporary side, Harrodsburg also features a selection mid-century bungalows and minimal traditional farmhouses.
