Frankfort in Franklin County, Kentucky — The American South (East South Central)
John Goodman House
Originally, the house was a Federal style design, with gable roof structure and no facade ornamentation, In 1900, a renovation project converted the roof structure and added terra cotta ornamentation. Since then, the house has had several owners and by 2004, it had badly deteriorated and the Franklin County Fiscal Court offered it for sale at auction.
Zigurds and Nancye Grigalis purchased the house in 2004, restored the building and the terra cotta ornaments. Also, they enlarged the building to make it suitable for office use.
