Exploring Kentucky

Dudeboy and I travelled to our state capitol of Frankfort for a homeschool day at the Kentucky Historical Society. The theme was "Exploring Kentucky." In addition to the exhibits, there was a historical interpretation about frontiersman Daniel Trabue, a hands-on-history lesson, and a tour of the Old State Capitol. We barely scratched the surface of what we wanted to see in Frankfort, so I dare say we will be returning in the near future.

The famous self-supporting staircase . . . Dudeboy was quite taken with the architecture of the Old State Capitol. Don't get him started about the Ionic columns.
