The Chapline Farm is perhaps the most beautiful acreage contained in the Anderson Circle Farm or the whole Bluegrass Region for that matter.

The existing Chapline House was constructed by Rufus Henry VanArsdall ca. 1900. It is an excellent example of late Eclectic, i.e. Queen Anne & Colonial Revival with Roman Ionic columns. Numerous owners have occupied this house throughout the past 100 years.


From the exterior, the Spring House appears to resemble a typical Kentucky tobacco barn. However, since itft.s restoration in 1991, the Springhouse has housed hundreds of guests from all parts of the world.

The yellow popular timber structure is constructed with mortise and tenon joints held together with tapered wood pegs. Its warm and peaceful setting and beautiful views overlooking the springs make the Spring House truly a unique and inspiring structure.


Wildwood is a primary example of the High Victorian Italianate style, and is one of the best examples of this style in Kentucky, if not the United States. The Italianate style dominated American houses constructed between 1850 and 1880.
