“Women in Basketball” is presented in conjunction with the Frankfort Convention Center in honor of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Women’s Basketball Tournament
, held this year in Frankfort.
The exhibition features stories of women who influenced the game of basketball from its start in 1891 to today. Visitors will have a chance to shoot some hoops as women did in 1900, then compare that to modern rules and equipment!
This exhibit is a “Let’s Move: Museums and Gardens” event, an initiative of First Lady Michelle Obama and the Institute for Museums and Libraries. For more information on “Let’s Move,” visit www.letsmove.gov

The Kentucky Historical Marker Program, administered by KHS in cooperation with the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, commemorates historical sites, events and personalities throughout the state. Through the program, the wealth of Kentucky history is made accessible to the public on markers along the state’s roadways. The markers are on-the-spot history lessons that add drama and interest to the countryside for Kentuckians as well as tourists. They are also available in an online database at www.history.ky.gov
