Lecture With James Klotter
Originally established in 1775, the town of Lexington, Kentucky grew quickly into a national cultural center among the rolling green hills of the Bluegrass Region. Nicknamed the “Athens of the West,” Lexington and the surrounding area became a leader in higher education, visual arts, architecture, and music, and the center of the horse breeding and racing industries. “Bluegrass Renaissance: The History and Culture of Central Kentucky, 1792-1852” examines the successes and failures of Central Kentuckians from statehood to the death of Henry Clay. James C. Klotter is professor of history at Georgetown College and the State Historian of Kentucky. This lecture will take place on Oct. 18 at 6 p.m., preceded by a reception at 5 at The Filson Historical Society, 1310 S. Third St., Louisville. This program is in partnership with the University of Kentucky Alumni Association. The reception and lecture are free for members of The Filson and the University of Kentucky Alumni Association, and $5 for all others. Reservations are suggested.
