Lewis and Clark Expedition Exhibit

The Grant County Public Library has four informative panels on display about the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Kentucky had numerous connections to the Corps of Discovery that explored the Louisiana Purchase and Oregon Country with Meriwether Lewis and William Clark between 1803 and 1806. This exhibit examines some of them, including Kentucky being a recruiting ground and departure point for the Corps, and a Frankfort newspaper being the first to carry news of the Corps’ return.


The exhibit is a collaborative project of the Kentucky Historical Society, The Filson Historical Society and the Kentucky Lewis & Clark Bicentennial Commission.
