All Aboard for the Historical Marker Bus Tour!

The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County and Visit Hopkinsville are taking our show on the road on a special bus tour of Christian County’s Historical Markers. Join us on Saturday, May 25 at 10am for a county-wide riding tour to visit our state historical markers.

Since 1949, the Kentucky Historical Society has partnered with communities across the commonwealth to install more than 2,400 historical markers that share our state’s complex and remarkable history. Of those 2,400 markers, twenty-two are located in Christian County – with two more approved for installation. The earliest was dedicated here in 1964; the most recent in 2020. These markers tell stories of notable people, places, and events that have shaped our community, our state, and our country.

The bus will load and the tour will begin at the Visitors Center (1730 E. 9th Street). The tour will be narrated by Alissa Keller, Museum Director, will last about 2 hours, and will include one comfort stop at the Pennyroyal Area Museum

Cost to ride is $15.00 per person. Tickets can be purchased online through Shopify or in-person at the Visitors Center or at the Pennyroyal Area Museum. The tour is limited to 12 people.

This bus tour is SOLD OUT. We hope to do more tours soon!
