Hopkinsville

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.

Beers, Tacos & Movies – Suspense!

It’s movie night at HBC! We’ll be showing a different movie each Tuesday at 6pm – we’ll announce the theme ahead of time but the movie itself will be a surprise until the night of the show.
Bring your appetite – Vansauwa’s Tacos & Vegan Eats will be serving their Caribbean jerk tacos, nachos, and guacamole & chips at the patio.
This week’s movie is rated R (although it was originally released in the 1960s and would merit a lower rating today. If ratings concern you, please call or message us for details.)

Food for Thought: Museum Book Club

Join the Museum’s virtual book club! We’ll meet virtually (for now) to discuss a book that explores local history and culture and is by a local writer. First up: Ted Poston’s The Dark Side of Hopkinsville.
Hopkinsville native Ted Poston is widely known as the Dean of Black Journalists and was the first African American to work for a mainstream newspaper in the country. Published after his death, this collection of short stories shares Poston’s experiences growing up as an African American in Hopkinsville in the early 1900s. The stories combine excellent writing and humor to examine difficult issues.
Purchase a copy at The Vault by Planters Bank shop in the Pennyroyal Area Museum, or check one out from the Hopkinsville-Christian County Public Library.

Dynamic Discs Veterans for Vets Disc Golf Tournament

Following in the footsteps of the Trilogy Challenge, Veterans for Vets is a new event designed to meet three goals. First, it gives disc golfers a chance to play in an organized event during the winter months. Second, it provides an awesome environment for a disc golfer without any tournament experience to play in an organized event. Finally, it provides an opportunity for a local disc golf community to raise money that gets returned to that same community to organizations tasked with serving veterans!
