Fall fun with the Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County!

The Museums of Historic Hopkinsville-Christian County is excited to announce a full calendar of programs for October. We hope you’ll join us to learn more about local history!

Here’s what’s happening:

  • Saturday, October 2, 10am-4pm: Museum-at-Home Pinata Kit – This month’s Museum-at-Home kit celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month with all the supplies needed to make your own pinata. Kits are FREE and will be available in the newspaper rack on the front porch of the Pennyroyal Area Museum starting at 10am – while supplies last.
  • Tuesday, October 5 – Friday, October 8: Free Fall Break at the Pennyroyal Area Museum – All Christian County students will receive FREE admission during Fall Break.
  • Saturday, October 9, 10am-12pm: Tombstone Preservation Workshop at Pioneer Cemetery – Learn more about Hopkinsville’s earliest settlers while making our community a brighter place. Folks will receive a brief training on how to document and clean historic tombstones safely before grabbing a bucket and brush. This program is free to attend, and the museum will provide all supplies.
  • Tuesday, October 26, 6:30pm: History on Tap at Hopkinsville Brewing Company – We’re cooking up a fun Field-to-Factory-to-Fork program that traces our legacy of mills to Hopkinsville being declared the Batter Capital of the World. Museum director Alissa Keller will share about historic milling in Christian County, and Robert Harper, president of Hopkinsville Milling Company, will discuss the history of his company and Sunflower brands. Amy Rogers from Visit Hopkinsville will round out the program with information on the recent designation of our community as the Batter Capital of the World. Local batter-inspired snacks will be available!
  • Friday, October 29, 6pm & 8pm: Spooky Cemetery Stroll at Riverside Cemetery – We will take two evening candlelit strolls through one of Hopkinsville’s oldest and largest cemeteries.
