Bluegrass Heritage Museum

Bluegrass Heritage Museum

This three-floor museum in the 1894 Guerrant Clinic building focuses on the history of the Bluegrass region, so named after the blue-blossomed grass species that grows here in profusion.

It features displays on the Eskippakithiki Indians, the founding of the Western frontier and Wilderness Road, the Civil War, and the tobacco industry. The Bell South Central gallery contains a 1910 "Bull's Eye" switchboard and phone booth, while the military gallery has World War II uniforms from the Army and Navy.

We hope you enjoy our work.
