We toured the Kentucky Derby Museum:
Museum admission included a walking tour of Churchill Downs:
The museum showed a film about the Derby on a 360 degree wrap-around screen:
Former race horses are buried here. Well, not the entire horse. When horses are buried, only the head, heart, and hooves are buried:
We visited with Transpired, who ran in the 2011 Kentucky Derby:
Fun in the gift shop:
The museum was interesting, we learned a lot about horse racing!
We continued north and crossed into Ohio at Cincinnati:
We worked our way into a surprisingly urban area to visit William Howard Taft National Historic Site:
The site preserves president Taft’s childhood home:
Like other presidential homes we’ve visited on this trip (Truman and Grant), the focus of the site is a tour of the home. Since we did not go on the tour, all we got out of our visit was a few displays in the room where tour tickets are sold.
Trish has finished the doily she has been crocheting for the past few days:
We continued on to overnight at the Cabella’s of Centerville, Ohio. We did a bit of browsing in the store:
