FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 20, 2015) – The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) will host a free knowledge-sharing community event, “Piecing Together History: Representing Kentucky,” Wednesday, Feb. 4, 1-4 p.m. in the Kentucky State Capitol Rotunda, 700 Capitol Ave. in Frankfort.

 

People are invited to share what they know about Kentucky state government in the first 30 years of the 20th century. Photographs from KHS collections which need further identification and information include portraits of legislators and staff who governed during that time and images which illustrate the construction of the Capitol (1904-1910).

 

These photographs are available online for researchers. Anyone who has information but cannot attend the event can go to kyhistory.com (click on Featured Collection) and submit information via the comments section at the bottom of each image.

 

Direct specific questions about the photographs or the event to the KHS Reference Desk at 502-564-1792, ext. 4460 or KHSrefdesk@ky.gov.
