Some people go to Florida or Mexico for Spring Break . . . we went to Evansville!
Evansville Museum Transportation Center, or EMTRAC. There is a good deal of exhibits pertaining to the L&N.
From the website:
The Tennessee Club Car also played a role in American politics. In 1952, it was used by General Dwight Eisenhower in his successful campaign for the presidency, and in 1964 it was utilized by Lady Bird Johnson as she stumped the South for her husband, President Lyndon Johnson. As the Tennessee Club Car was refurbished for use by Mrs. Johnson, it was in pristine condition when it arrived at the Evansville Museum.
Dick Blick. It was like a candy store for Dudeboy.
Moonlight Bar-B-Q. Sufficiently stuffed, we headed home to rest-up for this weekend . . .

Saturday Dudeboy and I took full advantage of the wonderful weather to hightail it up to Morgantown in Butler County to visit a couple of the tourist sites located in that vicinity. Well, actually I doubt these places get many visitations and the weather for the day was fairly suspect. Regardless, we made the best of it and had a grand time.
this link to see a turn of the century photo of the same spot . . . which is today situated on private property away from the current Logansport Road and is now all but a forgotten old roadbed in some woods.
marker along the current Logansport Road states:

A stone monument erected, 1894, by Granville Allen, Post 98, G.A.R., marks the place. Member of Co. D, 17th Kentucky Inf., enrolled by Col. John H. McHenry, Calhoun, Oct. 3, 1861.
