ABOUT STANFORD

Experience Small-Town Charm

Stanford is Kentucky’s second oldest city, founded in 1775 by Benjamin Logan as Logan’s Fort. It was also known as St. Asaph, the name given to it by Logan. The name Stanford may have been derived from “Standing Fort,” which Fort Logan became known as in the late 1770s after surviving a lengthy attack by Native Americans.

Cerulean is part of recent efforts that focus on restoration and preservation of the historic structures that make up Stanford. The beautiful high ceilings and tall doorways in our space are a result of unique decisions made in the construction of buildings from days gone by. The result is an ode to the past and a one-of-a-kind space for your events.

Cerulean is proud to be a part of Wilderness Road Hospitality.
