Preschool Field Trip to Constitution Square

We visited the site where Kentucky's first constitution was signed. Danville was originally slated to be the capital, but it was later moved to Frankfort.

Dramatic performers on the stage.

Learning about Ephraim McDowell.

The girls were well behaved during the "abbreviated" tour of the apothecary shop of Ephraim McDowell. He is famous  for performing the first successful ovarian surgery. He performed it in a makeshift bedroom in his own house. We toured the house and saw the room. We even saw some historic tools that were used in surgeries.

Play date. Pony heaven.
