          Explore the Falls of the Rough on the Rough River near the Green Mansion Farm and Rough River Dam. The 13.1 Mile trail loop is sure to get your heart pumping as you climb to an elevation with breathtaking views of the Rough River and surrounding valley. Run across a 200-year-old bridge spanning the Falls of Rough with remnants of a 190-year-old mill.

          Built in the early 1800s, the Green Farm Mansion was the centerpiece of the Green Farm at Falls of Rough during the community's era of grandeur in the 1800s and early 1900s. However, the mansion's demise in the last 40 years left many wondering if the historic structure would ever be brought back to its original splendor. "Restoring the mansion was one of our top priorities when we came here," says Green Farm Owner Sam Ware. "It's an amazing structure and deserves to be restored and enjoyed by everyone." That enjoyment has come in the form of a 9-bedroom bed and breakfast. The facility is furnished with antiques and all the structural fixtures in the mansion have been restored to their authentic state. US Congressman Willis Green, who served in the US House of Representatives for three consecutive terms in the 1840s, built the famed structure. Green was a close friend of Henry Clay and helped manage Clay's presidential campaign. Green's son Lafayette and wife Ella expanded the mansion to its current size. Stories of spirited evening dinners and family gatherings highlight the charm of the mansion during Lafayette and Ella's tenure. Their four siblings continued with the evening tradition as dinner was served by uniformed attendants with fine china displayed on the table. Austrian and Baroque style furnishings accent the interior of the mansion. Each bedroom has been filled with elaborate mahogany Victorian beds that you must see to believe. Elite rugs compliment the now refurbished hardwood floors and the grand staircase now sparkles from top to bottom, step by step.
