By Chris Tevis- Email

FRANKFORT, KY. (FOX19 )— Attendees to the General Butler State Park Goldenrod Gala will have an opportunity to explore "Kentucky's Abraham Lincoln" when they visit the HistoryMobile from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Saturday, Sept. 4. This experience, which is free and open to the public, is provided by the Kentucky Historical Society (KHS).

The KHS HistoryMobile is a mobile museum featuring exhibits on Kentucky history. Housed in a 45-foot tractor-trailer, the 300-square-foot exhibit 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 year.

For more information on the KHS HistoryMobile or to schedule the HistoryMobile for your community, contact Warren Greer, HistoryMobile program coordinator, at 502-564-1792.
