As you know the ASHLAND estate in Lexington, Kentucky was originally built by

Henry Clay, Sr. (April 12, 1777  June 29, 1852), was a 19th-century American planter, statesman and orator who represented Kentucky in both the Senate and the House of Representatives, where he served as Speaker. He also served as Secretary of State from 1825 to 1829.  I visited Ashland and there are pictures of it here:
