The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County invites you to celebrate Veteran’s Day and the centennial of World War I with us! Join us this Saturday, November 11 at 11:00am at the Pennyroyal Area Museum for “World War I on the Homefront,” a lecture by Wayne Goolsby. Goolsby, a teacher, historian, and extraordinarily entertaining lecturer, examines what Hopkinsville experienced during the war and the impact that the Great War had on this community.

The Museum also features a new exhibit on World War I that includes uniforms and equipment used by Christian County veterans. In addition, our Wall of Honor recognizes locals who have and who continue to serve in our armed forces. The faces and stories of these brave men and women represent a legacy of honor and sacrifice on behalf of this community for our country.

We always welcome additions to our Wall of Honor. Contact us at 270-887-4270 or visit our website at http://www.museumsofhopkinsville.org/military/ to learn more.
