Celebrate Presidents’ Day on Monday, February 18 with our annual lively event for children and their families. Doors open at 10 a.m. with the last entrance at 12 noon. Please allow one hour to complete the activities. This year’s games and activities will focus on Mrs. Lincoln and the role of the First Lady.
The annual event is designed for children ages 5-10 but is free to all children through age 18. Children under 13 must be accompanied by a paying adult. Adult admission is $10. Free parking is available behind the Main Street Baptist Church directly beside the museum.
Mary Todd Lincoln House Executive Director Gwen Thompson will present a talk tilted “First Lady of Controversy” on the campus of Western Kentucky University. Sophisticated and educated, Mrs. Lincoln seemed poised for success as first lady. Yet, few women in American history have endured as much tragedy and controversy. Join us to learn more about this fascinating Kentucky woman.
This program is free and open to the public. For further information, please contact Jonathan Jeffrey, WKU Department Head for the Department of Library Special Collections and the Manuscripts & Folklife Archives Coordinator, at 270-745-5265 or email@example.com.
Junior Girl Scouts are invited to a fashion-centric event inspired by Mary Lincoln and African American dressmaker Elizabeth Keckley. Scouts will make a living timeline about the two women, stitch a needle case, see 19th-century fashions, and create an 1860s dress design board. Reservations required by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org at Girl Scouts of Kentucky’s Wilderness Road.
