Colonel Richard Clough Anderson, a native of Virginia and Revolutionary War Soldier came to Louisville in 1784 where he purchased 900 acres of land on Beargrass Creek in Jefferson County and built a large, Georgian-style stone home with surroundinig stone dependencies. The mansion was partially destroyed by lightning in 1840, but razed several years later. Four of the original stone out-buildings still exist. A replica of the main house has been built on the original site using descriptions in family records.
