Riverside – The Farnsley-Moremen Landing is an historic site along the Ohio River about 13 miles from Louisville in Jefferson County. Open to the public, the site features a restored 19th century farmhouse and detached kitchen, gardens, a visitor’s center and numerous special events and educational programs. Archaeology has played an instrumental role in the restoration of the 1837 main house and a detached kitchen. Since 1989, archaeologists with the University of Kentucky and the Kentucky Archaeological Survey have conducted excavations throughout the grounds, focusing on outbuildings from the historic era. This research is providing insights into daily life on a working farm, river travel and the people enslaved there during the 1800s. Riverside has an excellent website with detailed information about its archaeology programs, history, visitor’s center and special events.
