KHS HistoryMobile to Visit Flatwoods Annual Homecoming
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 10, 2011) — The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) HistoryMobile will visit the Flatwoods Annual Homecoming at the B.F. Crager Community Park, 2513 Reed St., in Flatwoods on Saturday, Oct. 29.
The KHS HistoryMobile is a mobile museum featuring exhibits on Kentucky history. Housed in a 45-foot tractor-trailer, the 300-square-foot exhibit explores President Abraham Lincoln's frontier childhood, his career from log house to the White House and his struggles to end slavery and lead the nation through the Civil War. The HistoryMobile is visiting communities throughout Kentucky during 2011.
The KHS HistoryMobile program is made possible by the generosity of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, the Pilot Corp. and the Kentucky Historical Society Foundation.
Since 1973, this program has presented a wide variety of exhibits on Kentucky history to at least one million Kentuckians, half of which have been students.
