Kentucky Historical Society to Begin Regular Season Hours
FRANKFORT, Ky. (March 3, 2011) – Effective Saturday, March 12, the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) history campus in downtown Frankfort will resume regular hours of operation.
The KHS history campus, which includes the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum at the Old State Arsenal, adopted a seasonal schedule in 2010 to allow staff time to catalog and digitize artifacts during what has traditionally been a period of low visitation.
However, with the arrival of spring, the KHS history campus will resume regular public hours:
Wednesdays: 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Thursdays: 10 a.m.-8 p.m.
Fridays: 10 a.m.- 5 p.m.
Saturdays: 10 a.m.-5.p.m.
“The winter season gave KHS time to catalog more than more than 3,000 items from the collections,” said Kent Whitworth, KHS executive director. “Work accomplished over the winter ultimately means that KHS has more resources available for teachers, researchers, family historians and the general public.”
Upcoming March events at KHS include:
March 12: Family History Workshop
March 16: “The Social History of Bourbon,” a Food for Thought program
March 17: KHS Film Series, in partnership with the Appalachian Media Institute
March 26: Girl Scout Workshop
