Zachary Taylor sites in Louisville Kentucky

You know I have been on a huge Presidents and Civil War kick lately.  AND, I am finding that there are so many great sites literally right in my back yard!

In Louisville, you can visit the grave of our 12th President, Zachary Taylor!

Also, very close to his grave in a nice, neighborhood is a house he lived in!  It is a private residence, but there is a historic sign in front of it.  This is a very rare former home of a President that is not open to the public for tours.  The house looked well maintained...  I am sure the current occupants are very proud.
