Kernel Reporter Writes Interesting Article About "Ashland"
and Tenth
Home of Henry Clay, Kentucky's Most Famous Statesman Winner District Washington


CongresIs Named



(By Clay Brock)
Among the gentle rolling slopes of
the Blue Grass section of Kentucky
lust outside of the city of Lexing
ton, stands Ashland, the home of
Henry Clay. Here It was, in 1B0,
that "the great pacificator," chose
to build his home.
The mansion, as originally erec
ted, consisted of a main building,
two stories high, with a wing on
either side to which were attached
L's projecting to the front. This
original building became, in 1856,
unsafe, and was torn down by
James B. Clay, the son of Henry
Clay, and rebuilt on the same foundation. Henry Clay's study, the
room immediately to the left of the
reception hall, was restored in the
smallest detail. Upon the death of
James B. Clay, Ashland was pur
chased by the University of Ken
tucky and used for a short time by
that institution. Later the family
bought back the property and still
holds it. The present mistress of
the house, Mrs. Nannette McDowell
Bullock, is a great granddaughter
of Henry Clay.
The estate, consisting of about 300
acres, is one of the best tracts of
blue grass to be found anywhere.
On .the lawn about the house there

are about 60 kinds of trees, evergreen and deciduous. Imported
pines, chestnuts, cedars, hollies and
flowering dogwoods from the mountains of Kentucky Norway spruces,
catajpas and larches mingle with
the native ash and walnut trees.
In his fondness for trees, for beautiful vfstos, for a simple but elegant
home, Clay discloses a side of his
character little known to the associates of his public life.
"Henry Clay's Walk," a cool,
shaded lane, down which it is said
the statesman used to stroll and
think out his most perplexing problems, is still preserved. It is indeed
a beautiful lane and is a source of
admiration to the many tourists
who each year pay homage to the
memory of Henry Clay.
Another little known occupation
of Clay's was the raising of livestock. Thoroughbred horses from
Arabia, a Maltese ass, merino sheep,
English Hereford and Durham cattle and many other rare types of
animals flourished on the blue grass
of Ashland. Many of these were
purchased by his son, Henry Clay
Jr., in his travels abroad and shipped back to the old Kentucky home.
A host of distinguished visitors
have partaken of the hospitality of

Ashland. Lafayette, when in this
country In 1824, was entertained by
Clay, and a strong friendship
sprang up between them. The two
corresponded for many years. Har-l- et
Martlneau, Lord Morpeth, His
Excellency Baron de Marichal, one
time Austrian minister to the
United States and Count Berstrand
are other distinguished foreigners
who have accepted of Clay's hospl-tllt- y.
The present owners of the estate
have once more converted the estate into a farm for the raising of
blooded stock. Major Thomas Clay
a great grandson of
Henry Clay and well known to present-day
turfmen, has on the farm
many colts whose sires were the
greatest of their day. Descendants
of The Manager, Kentucky Derby
winner, Manager Waite, Flying Ebony and many other great horses,
can be seen gamboling about the
pastures of present-da- y
The Interior arrangement of the
house Is unique. The entrance Is
Into a large octagonal hall, to the
left of which is Clay's office. A
full length mirror, set in a door
frame, furnishes' a deception which
often leads strangers to calamity.
On the right is a stair case, and op-- J

poslte the front entrance are doors,
leading into the drawing room and
dining room. In the right wing on
each side are narrow halls, running its full length. Between these
is the library, a beautiful room with
a dome ceiling and lighted by the
dome. Beyond the library Is the billiard room, now used as a storeroom for the collection of many
interesting curios. One of the strangest of these is an old tomahawk
head, found on the place. This brings
back the days when Ashland was
a part of the "dark and bloody
grounds" and Indian tribes were
"lord of all they surveyed." In the
back of the library Is a broad, brick
terrace and to the rear of the dining room Is a green house or conservatory where beautiful flowers
are kept alive the year 'round. Most
of the floors and many of the trimmings used in the house were furnished by ash and walnut taken
from the place.
An Interesting building located on
the south side of the house is the
old yellow brick building which originally served as slave quarters.
This structure Is now used for a
garage. The two old Ice houses and
the underground refrigerator also
bring memories of the time when

electric refrigeration was unknown.
Ice was taken from the nearby
ponds and placed in these ice
houses for use of the family. Milk
and dairy products were placed in
a well constructed
cooler. This still retains its primitive quality of coolness and would
still be in service if It were not for
the more modern methods which
have taken Its place.
After Clay's return from Europe,
where he had gone as commissioner
plenipotentiary to the council of
Ghent he spent much time beautifying the grounds about Ashland.
He wished to put into practical use
the observations he had made while
abroad. His model was the English
country seat, to which he had been
greatly attracted. Flower beds were
planted and he superintended the
laying off of walks and shaded
drives about the grounds.
It is a significant fact that Clay
was only able to enjoy the peace
and tranquility of his home for
short periods at a time. Twice he
settled down to spend, he thought,
the rest of his life In happiness as
a citizen farmer and land owner,
only to be called back to Washington tinned on Pace Four)

William Day, representative of
Pikeville College and the 10th Congressional district, was named winner of the state championship in
the Thomas Edison science contest
held June 22 at the University. He
defeated Eldred Calkins and Douglas Wlneland, who represented Lexington and Anchorage, respectively,
by a close margin.
The following were the examina
tions given: A general Intelligence
test, Boynton's query for freshmen;
a chemistry examination given by
Dr. F. E. Tuttle; a botany test given
by Dr. Frank McFarland; a physics
given by M. States,
and a zoology test Under the direction of Dr. W. D. Funkhouser.
The prize for the winner Is a trip
to Washington, D. C, where Mr.
Day will meet Thomas A. Edison
and participate in a more extensive
examination. The winner of the
contest at Washington will receive
a scholarship from Mr. Edison co
study in one of the nation's best
technical schools.
Each state winner will be award
ed a combined radio and phonograph valued at $500. Many students
who were graduated from the various high schools throughout Kentucky participated In the contest.
