While on business in Glasgow, Kentucky I had several hours of free time prior to my meetings. I came across the South-Central Kentucky Cultural Center by chance and I consider it “my lucky day”.
The Center is located in an historic factory just off the town’s square. There I plenty of parking and no fee for walking through the Center (however I would recommend making a donation upon completion of your tour to help in the upkeep..it will be a donation well spent).
The Cultural Center is two stories high and exhibits life in the Barrens from prehistoric time with an Archaic rock shelter. The displays continue through early settlement, Victorian era and the military from the Revolutionary War to Desert Storm.
A one-room school, 1950’s doctor’s office, newspaper office, drug store, dentist office, filling station, funeral parlor, and 1930’s living room can also be seen in the museum.
What I found most delightful was the attention to detail in each of the displays that will capture your imagination and bring you back to another time and era. The items on display are wonderful and sit is obvious that a lot of thought went into presentation design.
The staff is extremely nice and buy what I could see, much more will be added to the museum. If you are traveling through Glasgow, this is a must see if you are a history lover and if driving by the city, treat yourself to a break from the road and do some traveling back into history.
You will be glad that you did..enjoy.
