Thursday, April 27: History on Tap

This month, Museum Director Alissa Keller and Christian County Historian William T. Turner join forces to share the history – and future – of the old Central Fire Station. Constructed in 1905, the building burned partially in 1924. The station was quickly rebuilt, and the town clock in its iconic red-and-white tower was added in 1927. The building served as the fire station until 1964. After that, it housed a number of businesses before its renovation and grand opening as the Woody Winfree Fire-Transportation Museum in 2008. The building suffered damage in recent storms. 

So what’s next? Join us and be regaled with stories of firefighting through the years and to learn more about plans for the building’s future.
