Extras Found at KY Historical Society

Jul 5, 2011

Dozens of treasures are hidden in the archives of the Kentucky Historical Society, including Soviet anti-aircraft guns, gilded shoulder decorations from a Mexican general and phony Paul Sawyier paintings. With limited space for exhibits and displays, tens of thousands of artifacts and documents are kept in storage in the second floor of the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History. The State Journal recently got a behind-the-scenes tour of the archives.
