The Pope Villa in Lexington, Kentucky, USA, was designed by Benjamin Henry Latrobe in 1811 for Senator John Pope. It is one of only three extant Latrobe residences in the United States. As one of Latrobe's most avant-garde designs, the Pope Villa has national significance for its architect and unique design.[1]

Purchased in 1987 by the Blue Grass Trust for Historic Preservation, the Pope Villa is now being restored to reflect its 1811 original construction appearance.[1]
