Tot Tuesdays! A Poppin' Good Time!

Here is a fun popcorn fact in honor of Columbus Day: Christopher Columbus allegedly introduced popcorn to the Europeans in the late 15th century, after seeing the natives of the New World popping and eating corn.

Join us tomorrow for Tot Tuesdays! A Poppin' Good Time, when toddlers and their caregivers can listen to a story, make a “corny” craft and munch away!

For future members, cost is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors 60+ and $5 for children. There is a $1 craft fee per child. Free parking. Reserve spots for you and your child at (859) 491-4003.
Truck Transport in the Early 1920s
Curator's Chat
The Stewart Iron Works Company has a long history in Northern KY, founded in 1862 in Covington. The company grew steadily, making all sorts of iron products, from fencing to architectural elements, furniture, bridges, and jail cells, with operations in Cincinnati and Covington. The company began assembling trucks in Covington in 1912.

BCM Curator of Collections, Jason French takes a look at BCM's second largest artifact, the 1924 Stewart Iron Works' U.S. Motor Truck.

Lewis and Clark in Kentucky
Famed Expedition is the Subject of
BCM’s Brown Bag Luncheon Oct. 17
Did you know that, while serving as a frontier army officer in 1795, the young and soon-to-be famous explorer Meriwether Lewis was court-martialed for allegedly challenging a lieutenant to a duel during a drunken dispute? 

The 21-year-old Lewis was found not guilty of the charges, but his superiors decided to transfer him to a different rifle company to avoid any future incidents. His new commander turned out to be William Clark—the man who would later join him on his journey to the West.
Lewis’ and Clark’s discoveries and the importance of their cross-country mission will be the topic of the Brown Bag Luncheon by Jim Mallory, vice chairman of the Lewis and Clark Trust, Inc., on Thursday, October 17.

With more than 1,000 miles of the Lewis and Clark trek within its borders, Kentucky has the longest section of the trail in the east. Mallory, a past president of the Lewis and Clark Trail Heritage Foundation, will give an overview of the expedition and discuss its Northern Kentucky connections. Mallory has a lifelong interest in history, focusing on the Lewis and Clark era. He and his wife Paula have traveled the coast-to-coast trail of the Lewis and Clerk expedition since 1985.

The lunch and presentation will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the museum’s TOYOTA Education Center. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. Guests should bring their own brown bag lunches. BCM will provide drinks, dessert and discourse. Cost: $3 for BCM members; $10 for future BCM members. Reservations requested at 859-491-4003.
