Two Clark County historical sites are participating in a statewide tourism program.
Both the Bluegrass Heritage Museum and the Civil War Fort at Boonesboro are on a list of 16 Kentucky Civil War sites compiled by the Kentucky Civil War Sites Association for the organization’s Passport Program. Participants are given “passports” they can take to all 16 sites and receive stamps, like a real passport.
Individuals who visit 10 sites can submit their passports to KCWSA and receive a certificate.
“The goal is to get more people to come here, and it’s a nice partnership with the other Civil War sites, because most of us have very limited budgets. By working together it allows us to do things we couldn’t otherwise, and it better tells the story of the Civil War,” said Nancy Turner, director of tourism in Winchester and Clark County.
All members of the KCWSA were invited to participate in the program, which began June 15.
