Housed in a 150 year old building that represents all that is left of the Capital Hotel, which burned in 1917, the museum is a large room filled with history and character. There are plenty of details to explore, with exhibits painting a vivid picture of both political and personal life in Kentucky over the past 200 years.

The Capital City Museum is open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Saturday

Admission to the museum is free.

Frankfort’s Fishing Reels: Jewels of the Bluegrass

Frankfort has a very unique place in history as being the town where the bait casting fishing reel was perfected and first produced. Every place has its historic event or figure, but only we have this distinction. It was a Frankfort industry for over 100 years. Local craftsmen handmade these gems to fish the renowned streams of central Kentucky. Their reputation for quality and beauty was recognized around the world.

FFOYA “FORMER FRIENDS OF YOUNG AMERICANS” Former Friends of Young Americans’ music pushes at genre boundaries from alternative to ambient, shoegaze to pop. FFOYA is fronted by multi-instrumentalists and married couple Robert and Amanda, their performances showcase the couple’s range as artists and songwriters as they move between a variety of organic and electronic instruments to create a sound that surprises in its breadth and delights in its experimentation. They are now recording their third and fourth albums in their Kentucky studio. The duo’s sound blends Toby’s penchant for punk, “pretty noise,” and ethereal guitar tones with Amanda’s poetry and the folk influences from her Appalachian upbringing.
