Day Tripper

Recently I took a day trip to Bardstown, Kentucky which is about an hour from me. It is the second oldest city in Kentucky (1780's), and named after David Bard. It's quite a charming town, with the fourth largest Civil War museum in the country. I really enjoy history and thought it would make for a fun time on a Sunday.

Before I went, I printed this great city map. I like the fact that it had the streets clearly labeled and the landmarks as actual pictures. It really helped.

I actually went to the Civil War Museum, but as the caretaker said, they weren't really prepared for visitors on Sunday. I was a little confused, because they have open hours. But anyway.. The outside wasn't spectacular, but the inside was interesting-

Outside, I browsed the Pioneer Village. It's a reproduction of a village with original cabins from the county that date back to 1776-1820.
