The Ripy House, built in 1888 by bourbon baron T.B. Ripy, and the Ballard House, one of Lawrenceburg’s oldest structures, will be open to the public for free tours on Wednesday, April 3.
BGT’s April deTour is coming to Anderson County that day at 6 p.m. to host free tours of the Ripy House, located at 320 S Main Street, followed by the Ballard House, at 119 North Main Street.
The BGT’s free April deTour will gather at 6 p.m. at the Ripy House where there will be a brief introduction before opening the home up to deTours. After making your way through the house you can stop by the Ballard House located on the other end of Main Street. Because the two homes are 0.4 miles apart please feel free to drive from the Ripy House to the Ballard House. Parking has been arranged for both deTour locations with parking provided at the Ripy House roundabout driveway and the nearby parking lot at First Christian Church. Parking for the Ballard House will be available from across the street of the home at The Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg.
This deTours Social AfterHour will be at Heavens to Betsy restaurant at 116 S Main St.
