The Henry Clay Hotel opened in the 1930's as a luxury hotel and closed in 1975. The building was completely renovated and the hotel's individual rooms were converted into apartments. It opened again as the Henry Clay House.
The Henry Clay House was to be condemned in September of 1998. Susan and Perry Madden intervened and purchased the landmark, which is listed in the National Historic Registry.
The Henry Clay has played host to interns and workers from several companies, including Honeywell, Marathon, the new power plant in Louisa, as well as the coke plant in Hanging Rock, OH. These tenants come from all areas of the United States, and some from as far away as Singapore.
The Henry Clay House is located on the corner of Ashland's main street, Winchester Avenue, and 18th Street. This prime location puts The Henry Clay just minutes away from Central Park, King's Daughters' Medical Center, the Paramount Arts Center, the YMCA, the public library, the Ashland Town Center Mall, movie theaters, churches, schools, and restaurants. The Henry Clay is sure to leave a lasting memory in all who visit and reside here.
