HARRODSBURG - Colonial decor will add a festive atmosphere to historical home Bachelor's Barter, the site of "A Williamsburg Christmas in Kentucky."
James Harrod Trust is hosting the tour of the home, which also will include hot apple cider and gingerbread in the kitchen of the Georgian-style stone-and-brick building, says Terry F. White, vice chairman for the trust.
Construction of Bachelor's Barter began in the late 18th century, White says, with completion around 1810. Samuel Taylor, one of the earliest trustees for the city of Harrodsburg, was the original owner.
The edifice was the home of the late James L. Cogar, who was the first curator of colonial Williamsburg, Va., White adds. At Cogar's death, the house and land were left to Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill.
