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.”
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.
