If you’ve ever been to Bardstown, you know what I mean when I say this is a very special Kentucky town. If you’ve never visited Bardstown, here’s your chance!
Enjoy an evening full of Kentucky history in the newly landscaped gardens at Federal Hill by Jon Carloftis at “An Old Kentucky Garden Party” on April 28 from 5:30-8 p.m., at My Old Kentucky Home State Park in Bardstown.
The event will feature photographs from Linda Bruckheimer’s “Local Color: Scenes from the Kentucky Roadside” collection, the Stephen Foster Story Singers, southern hors d’oeuvres, mint juleps and Kentucky spirits.
Bruckheimer, a Kentucky native, has been recognized for her preservation and philanthropic work across the country. She has restored numerous buildings in Bloomfield and in 2012, Preservation Kentucky established the Linda Bruckheimer Excellence in Rural Preservation Award. Her photography is inspired by a road trip from Kentucky to Hollywood.
Carloftis, also a Kentucky native, is an award-winning garden designer, writer, author and lecturer. His 25-year career in gardening began in New York City where he designed and installed rooftop gardens in Manhattan.
The event will benefit Preservation Kentucky and the Kentucky State Park Foundation. Tickets are $75 per person. For more information, call 502-871-4570 or visit preservationkentucky.org.
