We wish to acknowledge that this area of Kentucky, including the Oxmoor Farm property, was at one time occupied by the indigenous people that lived in the Ohio Valley region, namely the Iroquois, Shawnee, and Chickasaw tribes.
Oxmoor is also one of many farms in the Louisville area where slavery existed in the years before the Civil War. From 1787 to 1865 Oxmoor was home to the Bullitt family as well as enslaved men and women. Today, the site interprets the story of a Kentucky farm that has transformed along with the state from its colonial beginning to present day. Oxmoor Farm strives to tell the story of all people who lived and worked on this land and at Oxmoor through preservation and education. Oxmoor Farm asks guests using the property to respect the memories and lives of all who came before us.
