Brown-Pusey House - Elizabethtown, KY

This Georgian mansion was built in 1825 by John Y. Hill. It is known as "Hill House" and as "Aunt Beck Hill's Boarding House." The Swedish Nightengale, Jenny Lind sang on the front steps here in 1851 in front of a large crowd. General George Armstrong Custer and his wife Elizabeth boarded here from 1871-73 while he was tasked to combat the Ku Klux Klan and illegal distilleries.

Doctors William Allen and Robert Brown Pusey gave the house to Elizabethtown in 1923 for a Community House and library. Today, the house is on the National register of Historic Places.
