Kentucky: 225 Years on the Move

Kentucky has been on the move for 225 years. This Food for Thought focuses on the history of transportation in Kentucky as told in an exhibit on display at the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

“Kentucky: 225 Years on the Move” tells how people interacted with various modes of transportation and highlights Kentucky-made artifacts, such as a 1943 Ford GWP (Jeep) used during World War II, the first Bowling Green built Corvette, and the 1 millionth U.S. built Toyota Camry (on loan from the Kentucky Historical Society). Other artifacts include 1800s era mile markers, a horse-drawn sleigh, Mammoth Cave Stagecoach, early 19th century riding breeches and a 1935 Allis-Chalmers WC tractor.

Corvette Museum curator Derek Moore will present. Moore has an extensive background in transportation history, having been curator of transportation history at the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio, and working with the transportation collection at The Henry Ford in Dearborn, Michigan.
