Grand and elegant, Spindletop Hall is a treasure that was acquired by the University of Kentucky (UK) in 1959. Originally built with oil money from the famous Texas Spindletop Oilfield, the extraordinary mansion has been a Lexington showplace since its construction was completed two years after it started in 1935.
