We went for the weekend,so Sunday morning we went to Church services at Renfroe,I loved it,would love to do that again.,

Thank you Kentucky Tourism for featuring our museum today! I would like to also urge folks to follow our Facebook page to watch for upcoming music events. We have teamed up with Warren Cobb and Renee Collins Cobb with Listen Locally to find a way to have events safely and responsibly. We do an Artists in Residence series and a Sunday afternoon gospel series that are awesome, safe and responsible!! Masks are required and social distancing is enforced but we have arranged it to where it is lots of fun and your tickets also allow you to tour our wonderful facility!

On Sunday’s they do an afternoon gospel series...😶

So nice

Jared Vanhoose- we should check out sometime!

How far off the interstate is this place?

Today is International Literacy Day! Authors and writers from all over the world have drawn inspiration from Mammoth Cave for generations.

Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery is known as one of the most famous writers in Canada’s history. Her well known works include a series beginning with the 1908 novel, Anne of Green Gables. In the summer of 1924, L. M. Montgomery visited Mammoth Cave. After her travels through Gothic Avenue, the Corkscrew, and Echo River, in a first-hand account Montgomery wrote, “Everyone who goes..leaves something of himself there – a little bit of his soul – of his personality. And he always wants to go back and find it.”

Today is the first Monday in September, which means it’s time to celebrate Labor Day! Labor Day was first celebrated in 1882 on September 5th in New York City. Today the nation pays tribute to the American worker, who has created much of the country’s strength, freedom and leadership. From all of us at Mammoth Cave National Park, Happy Labor Day!

The Houma, Cherokee, and other Native American tribes used the Purple Passionflower (Passiflora incarnata) for food, drink, and medicinal purposes. Fruits were eaten raw or boiled to make syrup, juice was made by crushing and straining the fruits, and the roots were used to "draw out inflammation" from wounds. Other uses of the plant were to treat liver problems and as a sedative to treat nervous conditions and hysteria.

Kentucky had enfranchised European-American women to vote in rural areas on tax and education issues since 1838. But for women of color, like Zemmie Bransford, co-owner of the Bransford Summer Resort and the wife of Mammoth Cave guide Matt Bransford, that was not the case. For Zemmie and other African American women, literacy tests and poll taxes would essentially prevent them from casting a vote for another 45 years when the Voting Rights Act was passed in 1965.
