Photographer's comments:
     The Berry mansion is a beautiful old stone house on a hill overlooking downtown Frankfort.  Built at the turn of the 20th Century by George Berry, a wealthy distillery owner, the mansion and grounds now belong to state government.  The mansion was in disrepair for many years, but has been restored and the second floor now serves as the office of the state's Division of Historic Properties.  The house is open for tours and also is rented for meetings, receptions and weddings.
