Historic Russellville, Inc. maintains the Bibb House, a House Museum built in 1820 as the townhouse of Revolutionary War Major Richard Bibb who freed twenty-nine of his slaves in 1829 and paid for their passage to Liberia and who then provided for the liberation of his remaining slaves by his will at his death in 1839. The Palladian style home is an excellent example of the fine, early architecture of Kentucky and is furnished with perios antiques. It demonstrates the lifestyle and customs of the landed gentry who migrated to Kentucky.
