Old Kentucky State Law Library – Pic of the Week

Share this post:

On a recent trip to Kentucky, my colleague Robert visited the Old Kentucky State Capitol Building. This Greek Revival building, which served as Kentucky’s capitol for 80 years, is now a National Historic Landmark. It is also a museum open to the public which has been restored to the way it appeared in the early 1850s and contains pieces original to that time. Of particular interest to my colleague was the re-creation of the state law library housed inside the museum. Have you visited a National historic landmark? Let us know in the comments.
