The term ‘historic tour’ often brings to mind historic buildings and reenactors, but what about the time before history was recorded in words?  Join Professor John Hale as he takes us back in time on a bus tour of prehistoric Louisville, including stops at the Filson Historical Society, the American Life Building, the Falls of the Ohio and more. Refreshments provided. Space is extremely limited.  Registration and payment required. $25/person.

Join Professor John Hale for a special trip back in time to prehistoric Louisville. The morning will begin with coffee and a presentation at the Filson Club and will continue with a bus tour of prehistoric sites that will be sure to impress.  Sites include a stop at the Kentucky Home Life Building, the site of Louisville's largest prehistoric mound and a visit to the Falls of the Ohio and more before returning to the Filson Club to enjoy an up-close and personal encounter with prehistoric artifacts from the Filson collection.  With over 30 years of fieldwork experience, Hale is sure to entertain and educate as participants learn about a Louisville thought lost.
