McDowell House Museum

Welcome to McDowell House

McDowell House Museum is an 1800s historic house with a fascinating story, an apothecary and two gardens. This National Historic Landmark site is the former home and office of pioneering surgeon Dr. Ephraim McDowell. We are open year-round for public tours, group tours, and field trips.

We also run seasonal tours of Constitution Square Historic Site and have a unique gift shop.

Due to the spike in the Omnicron variant of COVID, McDowell House will be closed for tours for the month of January.

Staff will continue to work, please give us a call at 859-236-2804 if you need help.
