Slavery and the Liberty Hall Kitchen - Ongoing
This permanent exhibit illustrates how the enslaved people who worked in the kitchen combined hard labor and special skills to create meals for the Brown family. Staged to interpret preparation of a breakfast served to President James Monroe in 1819, the kitchen reflects the Browns’ upper-class lifestyle—and the enslaved women and men who made it possible. Images and interactive elements encourage visitors to explore the intersection of slavery and foodways in early 19th century Kentucky. Accessed through a guided tour.
