Local History Month Continues
It's Local History Month! To celebrate, we're posting things all month long from our Local History Collection on our social media. The Millikin Hotel was one of the finest and most well-known hotels in Bowling Green’s history. It was built by William Millikin around 1897 and ran as a hotel until the 1950s. It was known for its quality lodging as well as an exceptional dining experience. These photos of the hotel’s Thanksgiving menu from 1901 provide a little “taste” of what dinner was like at the Millikin. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter for more Local History posts!
