Donate to Farmington

While there are many ways to pursue an interest in Kentucky history, only Farmington offers an intimate view of a hemp plantation that played a key role in Lincoln’s decision to abolish slavery. By volunteering, supporting, or even working at Farmington you can help preserve the site and bring forward a key period of American history. Students, professionals, and retirees are welcome. Families of all sizes, shapes, and colors can visit the Speed family’s plantation: in person, virtually, and over time. Click here to view levels of support and activities:
