Let's Save KY's Ag History Together!! - We need YOU!!

Come to the KLA Poster Sessions 10-11am on Thu 9/28 and learn what you can do to help preserve our rich agricultural and rural life heritage.

This USAIN project is part of the NEH-funded "Preserving the History of United States Agricultural and Rural Life: State and Local Literature, 1820-1945." Kentucky is participating in Phase VI of this important project. Project Coordinator is Abby Thorne . Please contact her with any cataloged or uncataloged collections you have that might be relevant.

Let's do this together!

That sounds like such an interesting project! I bet lots of people will want to get involved. Especially since Kentucky agricultural and rural life has encompassed so much more than horses, cows, and tobacco. For instance, Kentucky has a history in hemp cultivation, coal mining, living in coal camps, cooking, and on and on.
