Welcome to The Felix Grundy Stidger House
One of the Civil War's best kept secrets. This house, built in 1830, in Taylorsville, Kentucky belonged to Union spy, Felix Grundy Stidger. He infiltrated a secret organization known as the "Order of the Sons of Liberty" and exposed their plot to free and arm Confederate prisoners and attack Louisville and Indianapolis.
The Stidger house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 21st, 2016. Historical Restoration plans are currently underway to save this piece of Civil War history. Support the restoration by clicking on our donation GoFundme site.
We were honored to be included in a video production by Family Tree Nuts sponsored by a partnership of The Spencer County Historical & Genealogical Society and the Spencer Co / Taylorsville Tourism. Enjoy!
Historical Restoration plans are currently under way
to restore the building to its former glory.

Fireplace is complete! Thanks to the wonderful work of Joe Goodlett and his crew we can continue to the next steps needed in our quest to have an Historic piece of history open in beautiful downtown Taylorsville, Ky.
Along the way, we would invite the good people and businesses in Taylorsville and Spencer County and surrounding areas, if you could find it in your hearts to help us finish this endeavor, it would be the impetus to start more interest in investment and visits to this Historic area.
Going forward will be the restoration and preservation of the Stidger cabin. Also the addition of an ancillary building to house an office/sales room and restrooms. This would make one more Historic place to visit in Taylorsville, Ky, along with the Court House, Jail, Hall/Taylor Funeral Home and more. Arnie Mueller
