Frankfort Historical Sites To Resume Regular Hours

The Kentucky Historical Society will resume regular operating hours this week at its Frankfort campus. Due in part to budget and staff cuts, the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History, the Old State Capitol and the Kentucky Military History Museum were closed to walk-in visitors over the winter months.Spokesperson Lisa Cleveland says that gave the remaining staff a chanceto do some archival work."Our staff, over the winter, made a great deal of progress in getting more than 500 new artifact records online. We transferred almost 20,000 records to a new, more user friendly database," she said. The sites will resume regular hours starting Saturday. Cleveland says interim workers have been hired to augment the permanent staff during the spring and summer. More information can be found here.
