mlk jr2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (1/16/14) — The Historical Society of Hopkins County is set to begin a new tradition Monday, Jan. 20 as the museum opens from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. with a Hopkins County look at Martin Luther King.

Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the society typically follows the local government holiday schedule and is closed on Martin Luther King Day. But with the completion of the newly-remodeled museum in December, the society has decided to be open to the students, who are out of school on Monday. The special open hours will provide a chance for the youth and all of Hopkins County a chance to visit and tour the museum.

A special display has been added to highlight Martin Luther King's life and its impact from a Hopkins County viewpoint. Hosted by historical society member Margie Bowman, the open house event is the first of several special 40th anniversary events scheduled for the society this year.

For more information, visit the museum at 107 Union Street, call (270) 821-3986 or go to www.HistoricalSocietyHopkinsCoKy.org.
