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

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.

ABOUT THE BAND:

It’s been an unpredictable journey since our founding Billy Goat (Mark Hamilton) took a trip to New Orleans and quickly became intoxicated with the city’s rich musical culture and tradition. He brought us together on a cold and rainy Kentucky autumn day in 2011 and shared his vision of forming an ensemble of all-star players for an old-time project.

Through our progression as a band, the moniker “Antique Jazz” started to float around. With the addition of tunes that contained hints of Kentucky flavor and an irresistible twang, we realized our strange version of jazz embodied the influences of a Kentuckian mode de vie.

Our result is a fun and exciting new genre of music that travels a centuries-old path down the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, through the bourbon trail, from Derby City to the Chocolate City and back. Ladies and Gentlemen: THIS IS BOURBON JAZZ!
