One of Nelson County's most historic homes was destroyed by fire early
Sunday. The Northeast Nelson Fire Department was called before 5 a.m.
as flames were seen coming from Duncan Manor, a two-story pre-Civil War
house on KY 55 just north of the Martha Layne Collins Bluegrass Parkway.
The house, owned by Lily Whittington of Cox's Creek, was gutted by the
fire, leaving only the brick walls. The fire is being investigated by
the state fire marshal's office.
