Cool History on Hot Days
Each Saturday in July and August, 2015 –When the Kentucky combination of heat and humidity make many outdoor activities too uncomfortable to enjoy, we will have a special program, presentation, lecture, or demonstration every Saturday afternoon in air conditioned comfort. All of these will relate to the history of early Kentucky, and will be presented in the Tavern Blockhouse or the Orientation/Theater Blockhouse of the Fort. Some topics may include Daniel Boone, Fire Starting, Flintlocks, “All Things Natural”, Lower Howards Creek, Tools for Settlement, and others. These events are free with regular paid admission to the fort.
The dates and topics are:
July 4 – A “Reading of The Declaration of Independence” by Bill Gaffney
