The Ward Hall Preservation Foundation recently purchased at auction some of the silver and china service original to the Georgetown mansion, Kentucky's biggest and finest Greek Revival house. It and other contents were dispersed in 1867 after the Civil War ruined Mississippi planter Junius Richard Ward, whose monogram decorates the silver. They are the first original Ward Hall possessions returned to the house, and they will be on display at candlelight tours on weekends before Christmas.
