Country Elegance Located just an hour south of Lexington, Shelby Manor is nestled on 625 acres of bluegrass countryside. The property, built in 1826 by the son of the first governor of Kentucky, is considered to be one of the most distinctive historic homes in the state. Tucked behind private iron gates and lined by 100 year old trees, the Manor is surrounded by lush green grounds and is beautifully landscaped in petunias, roses, and hydrangeas. This is not just an ordinary wedding venue. Unlike most wedding venues Shelby Manor has almost 200 years of American history which will make your wedding truly unique.
