Blackacre State Nature Preserve and Historic Homestead

3200 Tucker Station Road

Rural land has all but disappeared in Jefferson County– and with it, our only ties to the history of Kentucky’s early settlement. The Blackacre State Nature Preserve and Historic Homestead exists to preserve the precious traces of our past that have been all but erased in Louisville’s expansion into and development of its rural lands. Blackacre’s boundaries make up nearly half of the 600-acre Tyler Settlement, a rural historic district that was added to the National Register of Historic Places in May 1986. Remarkably, the pattern of fields, woods, and streams at Blackacre remains much the same as it was 200 years ago.

Blackacre is a hidden gem in Louisville. The staff are absolutely out-of-this-world amazing—the best hosts/guides one could ever ask for—Dale, Ally, Farmer Larry, the whole crew could not have been more accommodating and generous during my two-week stay here. If you're looking for gorgeous views and a refreshing getaway, this is really your spot. I'm jealous of everyone who lives close enough to regularly enjoy such a scenic and peaceful preserve.
