Featuring the exhibit

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.

NEAT: The Story of Bourbon at the Grand with Jim Beam Tasting

NEAT is a feature-length documentary that dives into the rich and storied world of bourbon. We learn what it takes to distill the worldʼs fastest growing spirit, as well as connect with the people that make the bourbon culture unique. Thematically, NEAT explores how the story of bourbon is about more than the liquid in the glass-it is about WHY you open a bottle and who is around you when you do. Bourbon has a way of taking you back in time. In a way, it forces you to slow down. Bourbon is a lesson in time: how to spend it, who to spend it with, and how to savor the moment.
