3 boxes of microfilm  (Workshop)

1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY
Presented by: Dixie Hibbs
 
Join us for a workshop with Dixie Hibbs, historian, author, former mayor of Bardstown, and recently retired manager of Wickland, Home to Three Governors. Dixie will share how she was able to find and utilize information from 3 boxes of microfilm, a thousand miles away, and how those reels of microfilm revealed little known details in the interesting life of one of the Wickliffe sisters, daughter of Charles Wickliffe, former governor of Kentucky. Dixie will share her experiences in historical sleuthing and reveal helpful hints that can be used by those researching for family histories and other historical interests.
“I love to research, but I don’t like to write.  Then why have I written sixteen books?  My conscience drives me to collect and make available the “new historical stories” that I have uncovered.  I will share with you some of the sources that I have used and how to research in them.”—Dixie Hibbs.

The History and People of Portland Kentucky
Tuesday, June 11
The History and People of Portland Kentucky  (Program)
1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
1000 South Hurstbourne Parkway (at Linn Station Road), Louisville, KY

 

Presented by: James Higdon 
The Nearly Forgotten History of Portland, Kentucky is the true story of the creation of the independent town below the falls of the Ohio that is now a resurgent neighborhood on the northwest end of Louisville. This story begins with the geologic formation of the 350-million-year-old Devonian-Era fossil beds now known as the Falls, glimpses of its mysterious prehistory, and then we meet the Shawnee, who are there when Daniel Boone arrives. From there, Portland becomes the stepping-off point for Lewis & Clark and many adventurers after them. Because of its early prominence, the story of early Portland is a parade of famous names, from Henry Clay, John James Audubon, a young Abraham Lincoln, Charles Dickens, and Mark Twain. But it is Portland's residents - Jim Porter, the Batman brothers, Pink Varble, Gen. William "Bull" Nelson, and Mary Millicent Miller, America's first female steamboat pilot - who make this story what it is: a page-turning narrative that reveals the history of Kentucky and Louisville from a new point-of-view: from the Lower Wharf of the Falls of the Ohio at Portland.
