We Need Your Books

For our March Book Sale

Locust Grove is seeking book donations for our next Book Sale, March 22-24, 2024. We take used books in reasonably good condition, hardback and paperback, in all categories. No encyclopedias or textbooks please. We also accept CDs, DVDs, puzzles, and maps. You can bring them to the Visitors Center, but please call first to make sure someone can meet you - 502-897-9845. For more immediate access, call the Book Sale Manager, Harvey Venier, directly at 502-558-8158. Book pickups can sometimes be arranged.

Your donations make the sale a success! Thank you!

Winter Hours

In January and February of 2024, Locust Grove will be replacing the heating, ventilation, and cooling systems in the historic house. In the weeks leading up to the project’s start our staff will be hard at work preparing and protecting our collections. To make time for this, the house will be closed for tours for part of December. The last day of tours will be Saturday December 16, 2023. The Locust Grove Visitors' Center will be open for visitors and holiday shoppers for an additional week, Tuesday-Saturday 10:00 AM-4:30 PM, with our last day of operation being Saturday December 23rd. In January the site will be closed for tours, but otherwise open for business. The Visitor Center will be open in February for certain special events. We expect to reopen for tours March 1.
