Scottwood Bed and Breakfast History

Print Email


Originally, the brick Federal building was a modest tenant house on a farm and modernization through the years was minimal. The beautiful ash floors, the woodwork, the doors and hardware and many built-in cabinets have survived. There is an original traveler's room in the upstairs where weary guests were invited to stay overnight.  The traveler's room could only be accessed from an outside stairway which is still visible.

Built as early as 1795, the Federal house once stood on Ironworks Pike in Scott County. The house was moved in April 1971 (to make way for a new subdivision) to its present location near Midway, in Woodford County. The original wings were restored by Jim Cogar (former curator for Shaker Village in Harrodsburg).  Mr. Cogar was also the first president and curator at Colonial Williamsburg, VA. With an addition to the rear of the main house, it made it a beautiful 9-room country estate. Thus, the new name of Scottwood, reflects both the old and the new locations.

These days, Midway is a quaint college town - the home of the state's only remaining women's college. The college has recently expanded its evening schedule to include coed. It is a town full of antiques shops, restaurants, beautiful historic homes and some very unique surprises. Be sure to allow time for lunch and/or dinner at one of the lovely restaurants. We'll be happy to give you recommendations.

LANDMARK SAVED -- Built in 1795, The Simon True House was located in Scott County on property where the Ironworks Estates is now. In 1971, the old house was destined for demolition when it was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Forrest Reeves of Midway. The new owners had the house moved to its current location on Leestown Road in Woodford County.

In January of 1999, Tim and Annette Grahl jumped at the opportunity to purchase the Scottwood Inn.

... and for the last so many years Historic Scottwood Bed and Breakfast has shared its uniqueness and aura with travelers from all over the country.
