Judge James Haggin House

This Federal home was built by James Haggin in 1810 for his bride Henrietta Humphries. James Haggin was the son of the old pioneer, John Haggin, founder of the Kentucky Haggin family of note in the thoroughbred industry.

Haggin was a judge for the Kentucky New Court of Appeals during a tumultuous and volatile period of Kentucky politics that almost brought the state to civil war.

The third owner of the home was Thomas Patrick Moore, Ambassador to Columbia under President Andrew Jackson.

This architecturally superior home is a Flemish bond on all four sides and contains Matthew P. Lowery woodwork. The house was originally located on over 400 acres of farmland with its lawn sweeping down to what is now College Street.
