Carol Ely gave a tour of Locust Grove, the farm established by William and Lucy Clark Croghan in 1790. She talked about the house, the family, their slaves, and their place in history. William Croghan was the brother-in-law and surveying partner of Revolutionary War hero George Rogers Clark, founder of Louisville, who spent the last nine years of his life at Locust Grove, from 1809 to 1818. His brother William Clark stopped there with Meriwether Lewis upon their return from their expedition to the Pacific.
