Description

The A.M. January house was built in 1838 By A. M. McConnell January.  The house is still owned by descendants of the Januarys and is now occupied by the 6th and 7th generations. Mr. January was successful in numerous business enterprises in Maysville.  Besides the commission business, he was the first president of the Maysville Branch of the Bank of Kentucky.  He was also actively involved with Henry Clay, and others, in the construction of the Maysville-Lexington Turnpike.  Harriet Cochran Duke, and her husband, Thomas Duke (January descendants), moved into the hosue following the death of her father, Judge AMJ Cochran.  Upon her possession, Mrs. Duke engaged architect John Henri Deeken of Cincinnati to remodel the downstairs of the house.  It was during this remodeling that the colonial revival woodwork and chandeliers were installed in the major rooms downstairs.  A new heating system with concealed radiators was installed at this time.   The back rooms of the 6,000 + sq ft home was modernized in the early 2,000’s with a chef’s kitchen, family room, master bath and some central heat and air. Original double parlors, library, huge dining room, and a sweeping staircase are just a few features that make this home unique. The double screened porches and backyard landscaping are exquisite.  Most of the original furniture can be purchased with the house.
