Bowling Green residents, visitors and students at WKU will have an opportunity to explore “Kentucky’s Abraham Lincoln” when they visit the 300-square-foot exhibit housed in the HistoryMobile, an experience provided by the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS). The HistoryMobile will be at the Downing University Center’s South Lawn on June 30.
The Kentucky Historical Society’s HistoryMobile is a mobile museum featuring exhibits on Kentucky history. The 300-square-foot exhibit, housed in a 45-foot tractor-trailer, explores Lincoln’s frontier childhood, his career from log house to the White House, and his struggles to end slavery and lead the nation through the Civil War. The HistoryMobile will visit communities and school campuses throughout the state during the next two years as part of the Kentucky Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial.
This program is made possible by the generosity of the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels, the Pilot Corporation, and the Kentucky Historical Society Foundation.
Since 1973, this program has presented a wide variety of exhibits on Kentucky history to at least one million Kentuckians, half of which have been students.
