This is My Old Kentucky Home

What an Exciting Time for the Judge Joseph Holt Home!

“Nothing can happen without a dream.”

      “Saving a piece of old Kentucky is priceless,” as the late John Egerton has stated.

Our history is strong as it is the story of what life was like and, for Breckinridge County, it is telling the story of its most famous son. Attorney Joseph Holt was known for his legal expertise all across America during the Civil War. And that is why President Abraham Lincoln chose him to serve as the “Father of the Judge Advocates.”

In preservation, education is the strongest element. This involves teaching community, region and state that saving history strengthens your community and that retelling the important story of American history keeps this nation strong. The Friends of the Holt Home, Inc., is a non-profit organization that works in a cooperative-agreement with the Breckinridge County Fiscal Court . Through grants and assistance from state agencies, the quest of restoring and reusing Judge Joseph Holt’s beloved home and grounds continues.

The Holt Home is becoming what it used to be when its facilities hosted and entertained the most distinguished individuals from across America. This national treasure is bringing attention to Kentucky and  gaining it additional respect nationwide.
Citizens are invited to play an active part of this educational and worthy project. Plan to be a part of something unique in seeing step by step how the last official Kentucky Lincoln site in the Commonwealth is being restored and will be reused.
