Trough Spring

Trough Spring
Jim Holmberg

Built in 1802 under the supervision of William Clark, on a site selected by George Rogers Clark, Trough Spring was the home of Jonathan Clark. It was to his brother, and to this house, that William sent expedition date letters and artifacts. (Read more about William Clark's letters to Jonathan Clark.) After the expedition and when William visited Louisville after his move to St. Louis in 1808, it was at Trough Spring that he often stayed. The house has significantly changed in appearance since the early 19th century but remains an important Lewis and Clark landmark. The house is a private residence and is not open for tours.
