Research Adventures :: Kentucky
For the first time ever we took two trips in two weeks. First to Denver, then three days later we headed east for Matt to pack in more dissertation research in Louisville. Kentucky is a beautiful state - this was our first time to visit and we were definitely impressed. Louisville has a great French heritage, Mammoth Cave was amazing, of course, and everything was clean and green. We'd love to go back!
- Matt's fast and furious research at the Filson Historical Society, a beautiful private library in a historic mansion, while I explored Old Louisville
- Abraham Lincoln's Birthplace - very pretty and the spring was neat, the marble tomb with fake cabin inside was a little strange
- Exploring The Hermitage, the lovely estate of President Andrew Jackson
- Shopping and eating (two thumbs up for Puckett's Grocery) in cute Franklin, TN, outside of Nashville
Abraham Lincoln Birthplace
Shiloh was packed - ha!
4 days, 1,800 miles, plus:
Penny-farthing bikes (everywhere in Louisville for some reason?!)
