Nestled 8 miles to the east of Louisville is the Bullitt family estate known as Oxmoor. Now synonymous with a shopping mall, Oxmoor has been owned by a member of the Bullitt family since 1787 and has been a working farm for over 200 years and there are still many original outbuildings on the property. The Oxmoor house has evolved from a small plantation farmhouse to a sprawling southern estate. Come learn the history of the Bullitt family, as well as the unique history of this little oasis tucked among two bustling highways.
Shirley Harmon is director/curator of the Oxmoor estate & cemetery. She is a native Louisvillian and was previously on The Filson’s staff as an associate curator and a special collections assistant, where she cataloged the Bullitt Family papers.
