White Hall a sprawling 45 room mansion tucked away in the beautiful farmlands of northern Madison County, was called home by more than one notable figure in Kentucky and American History. First built in 1799 by Green Clay, a prominent businessman, surveyor, and slave owner, the original home contained seven rooms and spanned roughly 3,000 square feet. The home was later passed on to his son Cassius Marcellus Clay, a writer and politician known for his emancipationist views and his role as U.S. Minister to Russia. Cassius Clay's daughters were incredibly active in the Women's Suffrage Movement, including Laura Clay, who went on to become the first woman to be nominated a candidiate for President of the United States by a political party. During Cassius Clay's time in Russia, his wife Mary Jane Warfield oversaw the contrstruction of the building's addition, expanding it to the 10,000+ square foot mansion we see today.
