This acclaimed Georgian Manor was built by renowned entrepreneur Roy Burlew in the late 1920?s. Burlew later gained national recognition by purchasing the Kentucky Radio Corporation in 1918 and transformed it into two vast & lucrative industrial giants employing 1,000?s of workers by the mid1940?s. Burlew renamed the Kentucky Radio Corporation, that made light bulbs, to the Ken-Rad Corporation. Burlew sold it to the Westinghouse Electric Corporation in 1943. Later in 1945, he sold his tube manufacturing plant division to the General Electric Corporation. Both were unprecedented at the time.
