KHS History Campus to Begin Winter Hours
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is shifting to its winter operating schedule starting today. From now to March 7, 2014, the KHS history campus – Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum at the State Arsenal – in downtown Frankfort will be open to groups of 10 or more with advance registration. The sites are closed to walk-in visitors during this time, except on Jan. 11 and Feb. 8 when the Second Saturday genealogy workshops are held. The entire KHS history campus will be open to the public these days.
Groups can call 502-564-1792, ext. 4424 for reservations (seven days in advance is preferred).
Focusing on group visits to the campus during the winter – when walk-in traffic is typically lower – allows KHS staff to concentrate on processing the society’s 500,000 museum and special collections. All other KHS services remain available throughout the season.
