WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — The Winchester-Clark County Heritage Commission is making plans to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the historic James Clark mansion.

Heritage Commission representative Debbie Barnes told the Winchester Sun (http://bit.ly/19VYKpO) that festivities will begin Feb. 14 with an art show.

Other celebrations will be planned for the summer and fall.

Barnes said tentative plans have been made to open the house, also known as Holly Rood, during the Daniel Boone Pioneer Festival Labor Day weekend. Barnes said she hopes to have guides in period costume sharing the history of the house with visitors.

"We thought a good way to celebrate (Holly Rood) would be to get people in and interested in it," she said.
