Whiskey Spirits Along the Ohio

Matt Becher, Boone County Historic Preservation Officer

Soon the night of spooks and spirits, Halloween, will arrive, but a different type of spirit reached Boone County in the mid-1800s, the legendary Petersburg distillery. Learn about this industrial giant along the Ohio River, which made more whiskey than any other Kentucky distillery of its day.  Also, see meeting agenda notes below:
