Location: Hopkinsville Brewing Company
Museum Executive Director Alissa Keller explores the winter of 1838 in Hopkinsville and Christian County. During this winter, members of the Cherokee Nation marched through the middle of the county and camped here as they were forcibly removed from their ancestral lands. Keller shares what is known of their experiences here and of the death and burial of two of their leaders. Hopkinsville’s spot along the Trail of Tears connects our community to one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history.

History on Tap: Derby!

This month, Chris Jung will present on Flying Ebony, Hopkinsville’s own Kentucky Derby winner. Jung, who previously worked at Churchill Downs and has attended 15 Kentucky Derbies, combines his extensive knowledge and love for the Derby with this local legend to weave a story that is worthy of the most exciting two minutes in sports.

History on Tap – At Home Edition

Stuart Sanders, Director of Research and Collections at the Kentucky Historical Society, zooms into our first History on Tap of 2021. Sanders recently published his fourth book: Murder on the Ohio Belle, a true tale of murder, mystery, antebellum honor culture, classism, and vigilante justice. Grab your favorite brew from Hopkinsville Brewing Company and tune in as Sanders weaves this fascinating story drawn on eyewitness accounts of the 1856 double murder.

History on Tap : Virtual Style

Join Jennifer Brown and Alissa Keller as they share stories about Ten Christian Countians That History Almost Forgot. Some of these folks may have strong connections – some more obscure – but all will be interesting!

We’ve all heard about Edgar Cayce and Jennie Stuart and Ted Poston, and we’re all proud that they called Christian County home. Brown and Keller intend to focus this program on a few lesser-known individuals who made an impact here at home – and beyond. From editors to artists to midwives, this program will prove that everyone has a story to tell.

Swing by Hopkinsville Brewing Company before you tune in. Grab a growler or a 4-pack of their new cans!
