Somerset Hall is a single family residence also known as the Kenner-Closson House. This was the second major country villa built in Ludlow, c. 1840s, in the Greek Revival style. It features a central pavilion with setback wings and a 120-ft continuous rear gallery, the longest porch in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It was built by George and Butler Kenner, of a Louisiana plantation family, as a summer residence. In the summer, despite no air conditioning on the main floor, the home remains comfortable because the high ceilings allow the heat to rise. A combination of formal and family-style comfort, you may find you never want to leave!
