Cardome Centre is a historic property located in Georgetown, Kentucky along the north fork of Elkhorn Creek. The 87 acres (35 ha) currently houses a community center for Georgetown.

History

For his military service, Colonel John Floyd was granted by the State of Virginia a total of 1,000 acres (400 ha), which included the Cardome property. The first structure was built by the Bradford family in 1821. James F. Robinson, who was governor of Kentucky during the American Civil War, made his home on the land. His home burned in 1987 and was torn down.

From 1896 to 1987, the Sisters of Visitation owned the property and had a prestigious girls' academy on the site.

Current

Cardome Centre is now owned by the City of Georgetown after Toyota made a million dollar gift for the purpose of establishing a community center for the people of Georgetown.
