2017 Northern Kentucky History Day

Event Type: Local History
Date: 3/25/2017
Start Time: All Day
Description:
 Over the past 24 years, Northern Kentucky History Day has become a touch point for historians, educators, researchers and the interested public to come together to celebrate the vibrant and diverse history of Northern Kentucky. From tragic events to the Civil War to life in our Northern Kentucky communities, Northern Kentucky History Day embraces the essence of Public History: historical research by community members about the community, for the community. BCPL is privileged to have the opportunity to host this year’s event.

Dr. Paul A. Tenkotte will deliver the Keynote address: Cradle of the Arts: Mother of God Catholic Church based on his brand new publication of the same title at 9 am. The book celebrates the stunning architecture and 175 year history of the iconic Catholic Church established by German immigrants to Covington, Kentucky. To embrace the multi-cultural tourism in Covington, Cradle of the Arts is written in four languages: English, Chinese, German, and Spanish. This remarkable resource will be available for purchase for $20 at the event.
After the Keynote, visit the vendor tables from 9:45 to 10:30 am. With over 35 local NKY genealogy, history and preservation organizations represented from across the region, there will be something of interest to everyone.
